Despite their 4-1 record against mostly difficult competition, the Georgetown Hoyas are unranked in the latest Associated Press Top 25 poll, which was released Monday. As part of the Maui Invitational Tournament, Georgetown defeated the then-No. 8 Memphis Tigers, 91-88, in overtime to capture fifth place; its lone loss of the season also came in the Maui Invitational, a 67-63 heartbreaker against the then-No. 14 Kansas Jayhawks.

But the Hoyas still find themselves on the outside looking in when it comes to the AP Top 25. Memphis, by comparison, finds itself at No. 22 now despite its 2-2 record and needing double overtime to hold off the unranked Tennessee Volunteers, 99-97, in the Maui Invitational.

The poll did see some changes at the top following the North Carolina Tar Heels' surprising loss to the UNLV Rebels on Saturday. UNC dropped from No. 1 to No. 5, while the Kentucky Wildcats ascended to No. 1. The Ohio St. Buckeyes, Duke Blue Devils, and Syracuse Orange make up Nos. 2, 3, and 4.
