Villanova remained the top team in the AP Poll after a week that saw just about everyone in the poll lose.

AP top 25 teams went 27-23 this week, with 16 of those 23 losses coming to teams that were not ranked. Just seven teams made it through the week unblemished — Villanova, Kansas, UNC, Miami, Arizona, Kentucky and Dayton — so it should come as no surprise that the top two teams in the country are both on that list.

Here is the complete AP poll:

1. Villanova (22-3, 44 first-place votes)
2. Kansas (21-4, 21)
3. Oklahoma (20-4)
4. Iowa (20-5)
5. North Carolina (21-4)
6. Maryland (22-4)
7. Virginia (20-5)
8. Michigan State (21-5)
9. Xavier (22-3)
10. West Virginia (20-5)
11. Miami (20-4)
12. Arizona (21-5)
13. Iowa State (18-7)
14. Kentucky (19-6)
15. Dayton (21-3)
16. Oregon (20-6)
17. Purdue (20-6)
18. Louisville (19-6)
19. Notre Dame (18-7)
