OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) _ The Oklahoma State Cowboys still haven't cracked The Associated Press college basketball Top 25 but they are getting close.

The undefeated Cowboys received 43 points in this week's voting which would be good for 28th in the poll.

UCLA is Number 1 this week. The Bruins jump from fifth after former Number One Florida was beaten by Kansas in overtime.

Pittsburgh is ranked second, followed by Ohio State, then Florida and Kansas.

The only other Big 12 team in the Top 25 is ninth-ranked Texas A&M.

OSU is the only Oklahoma school to receive any points in the voting.
