Michigan State moves to No. 1 in AP basketball poll

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.
Kansas, which beat Duke in the other game in the big doubleheader last week, moved from fifth to second and received seven first-place votes. 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.
Gonzaga (3-0) is ranked 13th.
