Who's on the move? 

There was no movement in the top four, as Kansas, Villanova, UCLA, and Gonzaga remain 1-4 in the Week 18 AP Poll. All four teams received first-place votes from the 65-member national media panel who determines the poll. Oregon completes the top five. 

No. 17 Florida and No. 18 Butler both fell five spots after suffering losses in Week 17. No. 25 Maryland rejoins the poll after being out for a week.

The addition of the Terrapins gives the ACC six teams in the top 25, the most of any conference. The Big 12 has four, while the Pac-12 and Big Ten check in three each.
