(KWCH/AP) Wichita State narrowly missed a spot on the AP Top 25 poll this week.

The Shockers garnered 112 votes falling to No. 26 right under Iowa State which rounded off the poll with 125 votes on the 25th spot.

Gonzaga is the latest No. 1 in The Associated Press Top 25 men’s college basketball poll that has had no stability at the top.

The Bulldogs moved up a spot to take over for Kansas, which lasted one week at No. 1.

This is the first time there have been as many as six different teams at No. 1 before New Year's Day.

The record for an entire season is seven, set in 1982-83.

Ohio State climbed to No. 2, followed by Louisville, Duke and Kansas. No. 25 Iowa is the only new addition this week's poll.

The Shockers did crack the Top 25 in the USA TODAY Sports men’s basketball coaches poll.

Kansas maintained the No. 5 position, falling from the No. 1 spot last week.
