KU jumped into the polls for the first time this season last week at the 22nd slot in the Associated Press Top 25 Poll. On Monday the Jayhawks (19-6, 10-2 Big 12) hopped up six spots to No. 16. Kansas, which was also ranked 22nd in the ESPN/USA Today Poll last week, moved to 18th in the Coaches Poll. Texas -- which lost 81-60 at Oklahoma State on Sunday, and who KU will face on Saturday -- dropped one spot to seventh, in both polls.
