The Associated Press men's basketball Top 25 poll was released earlier this week.

Louisville's loss to North Carolina created a shake-up in my top 10, as I dropped the Cardinals from No. 2 to No. 9. I also vaulted Oklahoma State from No. 7 to No. 5, because of the Cowboys' impressive win against Memphis.

North Carolina jumped seven spots for me this week after beating Louisville, while tough losses sent VCU, Michigan and New Mexico tumbling.

Colorado moved up one spot for me, from No. 23 to No. 22, after the Buffs' solid win against Harvard on Sunday.

Here is my ballot for this week:

1. Michigan State
2. Kansas
3. Arizona
4. Kentucky
5. Oklahoma State
6. Syracuse
7. Duke
8. Ohio State
9. Louisville
10. Connecticut
11. Wichita State
12. Wisconsin
13. North Carolina
14. Florida
15. Memphis
16. Baylor
17. Oregon
18. Iowa State
19. VCU
20. Michigan
21. Marquette
22. Colorado
23. UCLA
24. Creighton
25. Gonzaga
