Gonzaga remains first, followed by Kansas, Duke, Virginia and MI.

NEW YORK (AP) - Michigan has climbed to No. 5 in the latest AP Top 25 poll after impressive wins against ranked opponents. The top four of the poll remained unchanged with Gonzaga at the top, followed by Kansas, Duke and Virginia.

It's the first time in school history that Furman's cracked the AP rankings.

Week 5 brought three newcomers to the AP Top 25: Arizona State (No. 20), Nebraska (24), and Furman (25). Gonzaga garnered 21 while MI, unbeaten with double digit wins over reigning national champion Villanova and a top-15 North Carolina squad, received one.

It continues a rapid ascent for the Wolverines, which played in the national championship game last season.

Michigan State fell two spots to No. 10 after falling to Louisville last week. The only ones on the outside looking in are 7-0 St. John's and 6-0 Houston, which was held out despite winning at home against previously ranked OR over the weekend. Kentucky and Auburn moved up one spot each to eighth and ninth.

Some other big movement in the polls came from Florida State, Wisconsin and Texas Tech. North Carolina 15. Virginia Tech 16. Ohio State 20. Arizona State 21.
