Oklahoma (9-4) moved up two spots to No. 22 even though they had no significant wins after losing to Marist on December 21. They beat Samford (3-9) Sunday, 66-35. Iowa (12-2) also moved up two places to land at No. 23 after defeating North Dakota 88-62 on December 28.

California (8-3) now sits at No. 21, up from last week’s No. 22. Their only game this past week was a 77-60 victory over Lafayette. The previous week they suffered an 80-47 rout at the hands of UConn. Syracuse dropped one place to No. 24. They lost a contest to Arizona State, 63-60, Monday in Tempe. Gonzaga fell out of the poll. They lost to Saint Mary’s in a 79-78 overtime thriller on Saturday.

Arizona State (11-1) entered the poll at No. 25. The Sun Devils have won 10 straight games, taking down two ranked teams: a 94-81 overtime victory over North Carolina on November 29 and Syracuse.
