Kansas’ basketball stock is peaking.

All three of the state’s NCAA Division I schools are ranked in the Associated Press Top 25 for the first time since the 1964-65 preseason poll. No. 3 Wichita State led the way that season, followed by No. 8 Kansas State and No. 18 Kansas.

On Monday, the No. 23 Shockers, 14-1, joined No. 6 Kansas, 12-1, and No. 18 Kansas State, 12-2, in week 10 of the current poll.

Indiana — with No. 5 Indiana, No. 14 Butler and No. 17 Notre Dame — also has three schools ranked.

Missouri, 11-2, moved up two spots to No. 10.

Unbeaten Duke and Michigan hold the top two spots for the fourth straight week. Duke received 62 first-place votes and Michigan got the other three.

Louisville overtook unbeaten Arizona to be ranked third. Completing the top 10 are Indiana, KU, Syracuse, Minnesota, Gonzaga and the Tigers.
