The Jayhawks are sixth in The Associated Press poll, the Wildcats are No. 13. Both play tonight.

KU, 23-4 overall, travels to Iowa State for an 8 p.m. game, and K-State, 22-5, plays host to Texas Tech at 6 p.m. KU and K-State are 11-3 in league play.

No. 15 Oklahoma State is 10-4. No other Big 12 team is ranked and No. 8 Florida is the lone team from the Southeastern Conference in the poll.

Missouri, which defeated Florida and lost in overtime to Kentucky last week, received a vote in the poll.

The top five: Indiana, Gonzaga, Duke, Michigan and Miami, Fla.

In the USA Today coaches poll, Kansas is ranked fifth, Kansas State No. 13 and Oklahoma State 18th. Missouri didn’t receive a vote by the coaches.
