(Undated-AP) -- The Oklahoma Sooners have moved up three spots in this week's Associated Press college basketball poll.

Meanwhile, North Carolina has taken over the top spot in a shakeup of the poll.

The Sooners move up from 24th to 21st in the latest balloting.

The Tar Heels jump from fourth last week to the top spot thanks to their upset win at then-Number Two Duke and former Number One Stanford's loss at home to U-C-L-A.

The Cardinal drop to number two, Duke is now ranked third, followed by Michigan State and Kansas.

Virginia, Illinois, Florida, Syracuse and Tennessee round out the Top Ten.

Oklahoma State received ten votes in the balloting.
