HAZARD, Ky. (WYMT) - Despite stringing together a three game winning streak, including knocking off previously conference-unbeaten Texas A&M at Rupp Arena on Saturday, the Kentucky Wildcats men’s basketball team remains unranked in Monday’s latest AP Top 25 poll.

However, the Wildcats have received votes for the first time in several weeks. Kentucky received three votes from the AP poll voters. However, that is nowhere near enough to return to the top 25.

Here is the entire poll, including those receiving votes but not ranked.
