There were upsets, bounce-back wins and a number of blowouts this past week in college basketball. As a result, the polls reflect such action.

Here are the teams that moved the most in both directions, based on BennettRank.[divider]
Gonzaga — Up 4
This Week: No. 3
Last Week: No. 7
The only remaining undefeated team in the Top 25 gets a nice jump this week, and ranks just behind Kentucky and West Virginia, per BennettRank.
The Zags may not move up from No. 4 in the AP Poll despite going 2-0, since UCLA, Villanova and Kansas held serve, too.
Wisconsin — Up 8
This Week: No. 11
Last Week: No. 19

Baylor — Down 4
This Week: No. 7
Last Week: No. 3
The loss to West Virginia hurt, but was not a major surprise, while a win against Kansas St. — not to mention a stellar track record thus far — balances the Bears out. If Baylor truly wants to bounce back, it needs to have strong showings against Kansas and Texas Tech over the next month.
The Bears have a shot to get right this week with matchups with mediocre Texas and TCU, perhaps jumping back into the Top 5 if UCLA falls to Arizona. Baylor ranks No. 6 in the AP Poll to start the week.

Duke — Down 6
This Week: No. 17
Last Week: No. 11
Between Coach K’s back issues and Grayson Allen’s addiction to tripping, Duke has had a rough go to start the new year. The team is just 2-3 since Dec. 31, with losses to Virginia Tech and (this week) Florida St. and Louisville.
The Blue Devils are dangerously close to falling out of the Top 25 — No. 18 in the AP Poll — without a quick turnaround. It's a light schedule this week, however (Miami), and North Carolina State and Wake Forest could be exactly what the doctor ordered.
