UNDATED (AP) — You can look for a new Associated Press basketball poll today. Based on last week's results, it is safe to assume that Florida will retain its No. 1 ranking with Wichita State staying at No. 2 and Arizona three. From there, we might see some change as both No. 4 Syracuse and fifth-ranked Kansas suffered defeats last week.
