New, 25 comments
Dennis Wierzbicki-USA TODAY Sports

Villanova (19-2, 6-2) faced a slow week playing, and winning, a single game against DePaul in Chicago. Although #2 Virginia lost to #4 Duke over the weekend, minimal movement among the six teams ranked higher than 'Nova kept the Wildcats at #7 in the newest AP Poll.

Kentucky, now the only undefeated team in the country, remains the #1 team in the country with their 21-0 record. Gonzaga ascends to #2 and Virginia, Duke, and Wisconsin round out the Top 5.

Butler at #22 and Georgetown at #24 join the Wildcats representing the Big East.

Villanova next plays Marquette on Wednesday at the Wells Fargo Center in South Philly.
