I didn't get to this yesterday, because I was traveling back from Los Angeles, but here is my weekly ballot for the Associated Press Top 25 men's basketball poll.

1. Syracuse
2. Florida
3. Wichita State
4. Arizona
5. Duke
6. Cincinnati
7. San Diego State
8. Louisville
9. Kansas
10. Wisconsin
11. Creighton
12. Villanova
13. Virginia
14. Saint Louis
15. Texas
16. Kentucky
17. Iowa State
18. Iowa
19. Michigan State
20. Connecticut
21. North Carolina
22. Michigan
23. Memphis
24. UCLA
25. Ohio State

The biggest mover this week was North Carolina. I had the Tar Heels somewhere around 30th last week, but jumped them to No. 21 as they continue to pick up good wins. I still can't explain some of their early losses, but they seem to be back on track.

The only other team that moved into my ballot this week was UCLA. The Bruins had a nice weekend last week against Colorado and Utah. I dropped SMU and Pittsburgh to make room for North Carolina and UCLA.
