Kansas cracked the top five, moving to No. 4 in The Associated Press poll, while Missouri’s weekend loss was costly.
The Tigers are No. 17, dropping seven spots after Saturday’s 15-point loss at Mississippi.
Kansas State, riding a six-game winning streak, jumped top spots to No. 16.
In the USA Today coaches poll, Kansas is fourth, Missouri 16th and Kansas State 18th.
The Jayhawks, 14-1, are coming off a 2-0 week and take a 12-game winning streak into tonight’s home game against Baylor.
In a week in which the final four undefeated teams – Duke, Arizona, Michigan and Wyoming – lost, the poll shuffled.
Louisville became the new No. 1, followed by Indiana, the Blue Devils, KU and Michigan.
It’s the Jayhawks’ first week in the top five this season. Kansas has been ranked in the top four at least one week in each of the past four and six of the previous seven seasons.
Wichita State fell from the poll after losing at Evansville on Sunday.
