Arizona is No. 1 in The Associated Press college basketball poll for the fifth straight week, but for the first time in that span there are changes in the Top 25.

The Wildcats (15-0) were still a runaway No. 1, with Syracuse, Ohio State, Wisconsin and Michigan State remaining the next four teams. Arizona received 60 first-place votes from the national media panel, while Syracuse (14-0) got the other five.

Wichita State was sixth, followed by Baylor, Villanova, Iowa State and Florida.

Duke, which lost at Notre Dame, dropped to No. 16, the first time the Blue Devils are out of the Top 10 since December 2007.

No. 23 Illinois and No. 25 Kansas State moved into the rankings for the first time this season replacing Connecticut, which had been 17th, and North Carolina, which was 19th.



Women’s


While Connecticut remains No. 1, three new teams appeared in The Associated Press women’s poll Monday.

N.C. State, Indiana and San Diego all entered the Top 25 for the first time this season. It’s been nearly seven years since the Wolfpack were ranked, 21 years for the Hoosiers and the first time for the Toreros.

North Carolina State entered at 20th, Indiana was 22nd and San Diego 24th. The Hoosiers and Toreros are both still undefeated this season.

The Hoosiers first game as a ranked team since Jan. 19, 1993, will have to wait because their contest at Purdue on Monday was postponed because of inclement weather.

Notre Dame, Duke, Stanford and Louisville followed the unbeaten Huskies. Maryland, Baylor, Tennessee, Kentucky and South Carolina rounded out the top 10.
