Duke, Ohio State and Kansas are 1-2-3 in The Associated Press Top 25 for the fourth straight week. There is some change at the bottom of the poll, however, with Washington, Cincinnati and UNLV moving in.

Duke, the reigning national champion, is again a unanimous No. 1 on Monday. Syracuse, Pittsburgh, San Diego State and Villanova all moved up one place and are fourth through seventh. Connecticut dropped from fourth to eighth and was followed by Missouri and Kentucky.

Minnesota lost two games last week and dropped out of the Top 25 along with Louisville and Temple .

With Cincinnati replacing Louisville, the Big East again has seven ranked teams, two more than the Big 12. Washington and UNLV were both ranked earlier this season.
