Kansas is the new number one team in the nation, with Duke at two, Tennessee at three, Gonzaga down to four and Michigan at five. The rest of the top ten includes Virginia, Nevada, Auburn, Michigan State and Florida State. Marquette finds itself back into the poll this week – the Golden Eagles slide into the rankings at number 21.

Happ also scored 20 points in a win over Rutgers last Monday.
