AUSTIN (KXAN/AP) — Marquette and former Texas Longhorns coach Shaka Smart have entered the Associated Press poll for the first time — right as Texas men’s basketball exits the Top 25 during the 2021-22 season.

The Golden Eagles are on the move, coming in at No. 23 in the latest poll. The spot Texas owned in last week’s poll. Marquette has three straight ranked wins, knocking off Seton Hall, Villanova and Xavier.

The Longhorns are out of the poll for the first time during the season — a precipitous drop from UT’s No. 5 preseason ranking. Texas has lost three of its last five games in a bumpy start to the Big 12 schedule. The Longhorns snapped a two-game skid Saturday with a 56-51 win against Oklahoma State.

The Longhorns travel to Fort Worth to face TCU Tuesday at 8 p.m. CT on ESPNU.

With undefeated weeks, Baylor and Kansas were ranked No. 4 and No. 5. Fresh off a five-spot jump, Texas Tech will face No. 5 Kansas in Lawrence Monday night for a primetime Big 12 matchup.

Auburn climbed past Gonzaga to No. 1. The Tigers beat Kentucky over the weekend for their 15th consecutive win, then scooped up 45 of 61 first-place votes to become the nation’s top-ranked team for the first time since the poll began with the 1948-49 season.
