Kansas moves to No. 1 in AP poll, Villanova 2nd, UCLA 3rd

LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — Kansas could have rested easy after clinching a share of its 13th straight Big 12 title.

Instead, the Jayhawks hit the road to beat Texas on Saturday, clinching the outright championship with two games left in the regular season. And when top-ranked Gonzaga and second-ranked Villanova dropped games last week, it meant the Jayhawks ascended to the top of The Associated Press poll.

So much for taking it easy.
