Missouri and Wichita State each moved up one spot and Kansas fell five in the latest Associated Press Top 25 college basketball poll.

The Tigers, who improved to 10-0 with a win over Western Michigan on Sunday, are No. 23. They play Illinois on Saturday in St. Louis in the annual Braggin Rights Game.

The Shockers, who fell in the poll last week despite their undefeated record, moved up to No. 11 this week.

The Jayhawks, 7-3, are No. 18, one spot ahead of the other three-loss team in the poll, Kentucky. KU lost at Florida and beat New Mexico last week.
