The updated college basketball AP poll has been released on Monday, and the full order will be released shortly. The new "Treat 16+1 Power Poll" has also been released and their is a new No. 1 team in the nation. With Syracuse taking two losses during the week, it's only right that the only unbeaten team holds the first spot in the new power poll.

Doug McDermott continued his relentless scoring streak, while moving into the top 10 all time. He helped Creighton move into the top 5" of the power poll.

Here is the rest of the "Treat 16."

1. Wichita State: The Shockers are (29-0) and they should be the number one team in the nation. This is a fluid situation that could change nightly, but other top teams have struggle to win games. Next games. At Bradley, vs. Missouri State.

2. Florida: The Gators clutch down the stretch in two SEC wins. They’ve won 19 in a row, overall. Florida has all but locked up a No. 1 seed in the NCAA tournament, and they have run away in the SEC. Next games vs. Vanderbilt, vs. LSU.

3. Arizona: The Wildcats dominated Cal on Saturday night. Aaron Gordon had his best game in the points department. Next games vs. Cal. vs. Stanford.

4. Syracuse: Syracuse had two losses in one week. Both games came down to the final possession, but ended quite differently. The Orange have fallen to second in the ACC. Next games vs. Maryland, vs. Virginia.
