The new AP Men's Basketball Top 25 poll dropped this afternoon, and the Kansas State Wildcats are pretty much right where they were in the preseason poll. They've gained two points, up to 29 from 27, and slide up one spot from 31 to 30 thanks to Minnesota's loss to Louisville on Friday night in Puerto Rico.

There is almost change whatsoever in the top 25 itself, other than Duke stealing some first-place votes from all three teams above them and two pairs of teams -- Louisville and Florida, Oklahoma and Michigan State -- swapping places.

With the first wave of big pre-season tournaments looming, there will be a shakeup. But after what's basically been exhibition season for most teams, there haven't been any real surprises to stir things up yet.

With that, here's your poll.
