Winners and Losers from the AP College Basketball Top 25 Rankings...
Rob Foldy-USA TODAY Sports

The latest AP Top 25 has been published, and with all the shake-up in the past seven days, there was no shortage of winners and losers.

The teams that made up last Monday's Top 25 had a combined record of 562-116 on the season—a winning percentage of 82.9 percent. In the past seven days, though, they won just 63 percent of their 46 games.

Despite it being an ugly week for the Top 25, the top three teams did just fine. Florida struggled with Vanderbilt on Tuesday night, but bounced back with an 18-point win over LSU on Saturday to remain No. 1 in the nation.

After the loss to Florida, LSU head coach Johnny Jones told reporters (h/t ESPN), "I think when you have a senior team like they are and guys are able to make plays like that and are used to winning, some great things can happen for you."

Wichita State improved to 31-0 with a pair of blowout wins over Bradley and Missouri State, and Arizona kept the pressure on the top two teams with an equally convincing week against considerably better opposition.

Beyond that, though, things got a bit crazy.

There were four teams—Iowa, Kentucky, Ohio State and Saint Louis—which lost multiple games. Not surprisingly, they all plummeted in the rankings and were four of the week's five biggest losers.

Teams like Connecticut and New Mexico benefited greatly from their fallen comrades. The Huskies and the Lobos combined to jump 11 spots in this week's poll.

Here are the rest of your biggest winners and losers.
