College basketball rankings: Kansas is the No. 1 team in the nation in final Coaches Poll of season

Kansas is the No. 1 team in the final Coaches Poll of the season, released Monday. The final poll is out three weeks early after the college basketball season came to a screeching halt last week amid the coronavirus pandemic, leaving many major conference tournaments unfinished and the NCAA Tournament canceled. 

As such, the final Coaches Poll of the season remains largely unchanged from the week before as Kansas, Gonzaga and Dayton remain Nos. 1-2-3 in the rankings. Baylor and Florida State flipped spots, with the Bears moving to No. 4 and FSU falling to No. 5.

San Diego State, Kentucky, Duke, Villanova and Creighton round out the top 10.

The Jayhawks earned 29 of a possible 32 first-place votes in this week’s poll after being voted as a unanimous No. 1 team the past two weeks. Gonzaga earned the remaining three first-place votes.
