The Streak Continues
LAWRENCE, Kan. – The 7th-ranked Kansas men’s basketball team now holds the longest active streak for consecutive weeks ranked in the Associated Press Top 25 (136) and the USA Today Coaches’ Poll (143), after the latest polls were released on Monday.
The Jayhawks passed Duke, which fell out of the poll for the first time in eight seasons to end 167-straight weeks in the AP Top 25.
Kansas has been ranked in the top-10 of both polls for the entire 2015-16 season, including two weeks at No. 1 in the AP Top 25.
The streaks started nearly seven years ago to the day on Feb. 2, 2009, but differ in length because USA Today publishes an extra Coaches’ poll in March each season.
Under coach Bill Self, Kansas has been ranked in the AP Top 25 for 222 weeks, which includes 160 weeks in the Top 10, 92 times in the Top 5 and 22 times at No. 1. In the coaches’ poll, under Self, Kansas has been ranked 235 times with 173 in the top 10 and 106 in the top five.
