The latest Associated Press Top 25 men's basketball rankings were released on Monday. Here's a look at the ballot I turned in to the AP on Sunday night:

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

A lot of changes this week, starting with No. 1 Syracuse losing twice, as well as Nos. 5-7 (Duke, Cincinnati and San Diego State) from my ballot all losing at least once last week.

Biggest mover: North Carolina (from No. 21 last week to No. 21) . Tar Heels went 3-0, including a big win against Duke. The have have some bad losses, but also some great wins and they are rolling right now.

Biggest fall: San Diego State (from No. 7 to No. 16): Back-to-back weeks the Aztecs have lost a game on the road to unranked opponents. Not terrible losses, but enough in my mind to drop them.

Dropped out: Texas (from No. 15), UCLA (from No. 24).
Moved in: SMU (to No. 23), New Mexico (to No. 25).
