Views 19

Arizona is No. 1 in the Associated Press top 25 poll for the fifth straight week, but Duke fell out of the top 10 for the first time in more than six years.

The Wildcats (15-0) received 60 of 65 first-place votes in the latest poll, which was released Monday. No. 2 Syracuse (14-0) picked up the remaining five votes.

Ohio State, Wisconsin and Michigan State made up the remainder of the top five.

Duke (11-3) fell from seventh to No. 16 after losing to unranked Notre Dame. It is the first time since December 2007 that the Blue Devils have not been in the top 10. Duke's streak of 122 consecutive weeks in the top 10 was second only to UCLA. The Bruins were a top-10 team for 155 straight weeks from 1966-76.

Wichita State, Baylor, Villanova, Iowa State and Florida completed the top 10.

No. 23 Illinois and No. 25 Kansas State made their season debuts in the top 25, replacing then-No. 17 Connecticut and former No. 19 North Carolina.
