The unbeaten Kentucky Wildcats are no longer the unanimous No. 1 team in the nation after two overtime games last week, but they remained at the top in the latest Associated Press college basketball poll.

The Wildcats (15-0) received 63 of 65 first-place votes cast Monday, ending a run of five straight weeks as the unanimous No. 1.

Kentucky found a way to keep its undefeated mark intact thanks to a 89-86 overtime win over Mississippi on Tuesday and then the Wildcats needed double overtime to turn back Texas A&M 70-64 on Saturday.

Virginia (15-0) earned the other two first-place votes and moved up a spot to No. 2 as the only other unbeaten team after Duke lost 87-75 to North Carolina State on Sunday.

Gonzaga (16-1) was third, followed by Duke (14-1) and Villanova (15-1). Louisville (14-2), which lost to North Carolina 72-71 on Saturday, dropped from No. 5 to sixth. Wisconsin (15-2), which lost to Rutgers 67-62 on Sunday, went down from No. 4 to seventh.
