Gonzaga and Baylor remained atop The Associated Press mens college basketball poll, while fourth-ranked Texas has climbed to its highest perch in nearly a decade.

Mark Fews Bulldogs earned 63 of 64 first-place votes in Mondays latest Top 25, while Scott Drews Bears earned the other vote. Gonzaga and Baylor have been 1-2 at the top in all seven polls so far this season.

Villanova climbed one spot to No. 3, followed by the Longhorns, who jumped four spots after handing Kansas a lopsided weekend home loss. That marked the programs highest ranking under sixth-year coach Shaka Smart and its first top-5 ranking since February 2011.

Iowa, Kansas, Creighton, Wisconsin, Tennessee and Michigan rounded out the top 10, with the Wolverines climbing six spots for the biggest jump of the week. No. 11 Houston and No. 14 West Virginia slid out from that top tier from last week.

No. 19 Clemson was back in the poll for the second time this season, while the other new addition was St. Louis. The Billikens, tied with Michigan State at No. 23, made their first AP Top 25 appearance since the 2013-14 season.

Northwestern and Ohio State fell out of the poll.
