Evan Habeeb-USA TODAY Sports

The Week 8 College Basketball rankings are out and the 10-3 Illinois Fighting Illini, again, haven't received any votes in the AP Top 25. The Kentucky Wildcats remain the unanimous No. 1 selection while the No. 4 Wisconsin Badgers, No. 12 Maryland Terrapins, and No. 20 Ohio State Buckeyes represent the Big Ten; Penn State, Indiana, and Minnesota also received some votes.

Here's the updated AP Top 25 in its entirety:
