The opening weekend of the 2012-13 college basketball season did
little to change The Associated Press’ Top 25.

Led by Indiana and Louisville, the first seven teams in the
initial regular-season poll were the same as the preseason Top 25.

The Hoosiers (1-0) were again a solid No. 1, receiving 46
first-place votes from the 65-member national media panel.
Louisville (1-0) was No. 1 on 18 ballots.

Kentucky (1-0), which received one first-place vote, was third,
followed by Ohio State, Michigan, North Carolina State and Kansas.

Syracuse and Duke swapped places at eighth and ninth and Florida
again rounded out the top 10.

The only newcomer to the poll is Connecticut (1-0), which jumped
in at No. 23 after beating then-No. 14 Michigan State (0-1) in a
game played in Germany. Florida State (0-1), which lost 76-71 to
South Alabama, dropped out from 25th.
