Winners and Losers from the AP College Basketball Top 25 Rankings in Week 9
Jamie Rhodes-USA TODAY Sports

The top five teams in the AP Top 25 remained unchanged for a fourth consecutive week, but losses by Louisville and Villanova added a bit of volatility to this week's rankings.

By dropping eight spots, Louisville was unquestionably the week's biggest loser, but there were others who didn't fare so well either. Saint Mary's had a horrendous week and didn't receive a single vote. Toledo was loss-free for an eighth straight week, but still couldn't crack into the Top 25.

One team's loss is another's gain, and Kentucky made the biggest upward jump this week in dispatching Louisville. Syracuse was unable to overtake Arizona for the top spot in the nation after defeating Villanova, but the Orange did close the gap a bit. And on the other end of the poll, Kansas State picked up its first few votes of the season.

Read on for the full list of this week's winners and losers in the new AP Top 25.
