The Associated Press Top 25 for the week of Dec. 12 is up, and there's another shakeup in the top five, with both of the top two teams being upset. The week saw the Kentucky Wildcats lost to the unranked Indiana Hoosiers and the No. 2 Ohio State Buckeyes also drop a big game against Kansas, but they maintained their No. 2 ranking. Syracuse has occupied the top spot now, with 51 first-place votes, while Kentucky drops to No. 3, with Louisville and North Carolina rounding out the top five.

This week sees the Michigan Wolverines maintain their spot from last week at No. 20. Since the last rankings, they've only played the Oakland Golden Grizzlies, so they couldn't be expected to make a significant jump. The Michigan State Spartans, though, find themselves in the Top 25, after beating Gonzaga on Dec. 10 74-67. They slot in at No. 21, just behind Michigan.

Both teams are also ranked on the ESPN/USA Today Coaches Poll, with the Wolverines coming in at No. 18 and MSU just making it at No. 23.
