(AP) -- Kansas jumped from fifth to second and received seven first-place votes which after beating Duke last week.

Michigan State is No. 1 in The Associated Press' college basketball poll for the first time in 13 years.

The Spartans moved up one spot after beating top-ranked Kentucky last week. They took the No. 1 spot by a wide margin, receiving 51 first-place votes Monday from the 65-member national media panel.

This is Michigan State's first time leading the rankings since a two-week run in 2000-01 when the Spartans reached the Final Four. Their only other time at No. 1 was a two-week stint in 1978-79 when Magic Johnson carried the Spartans to the national title.

Louisville stayed third and drew the other seven first-place votes.

Kentucky dropped to fourth and was followed by Arizona, Duke, Oklahoma State, Ohio State, Syracuse and VCU.
