AP poll: Michigan State No. 1 for 3rd week in row

Michigan State stays No. 1 for a third straight week in The Associated Press’ college basketball poll, receiving all but two of the first-place votes.

Arizona moved from fourth to second Monday, drawing the other No. 1 votes from the 65-member national media panel.

Kentucky remains third while Syracuse jumps from eighth to fourth. Ohio State moves up two spots to fifth and is followed by Kansas, which had been second. Completing the top 10 are Louisville, Wisconsin, Oklahoma State and Duke, which drops four spots after losing to Arizona in the NIT Season Tip-Off.

Villanova beat Kansas and Iowa to win the Battle 4 Atlantis and goes from unranked to No. 14. The other newcomers are No. 24 San Diego State and No. 25 Dayton. They replace North Carolina, Creighton and Marquette.

Dayton’s entry into the rankings makes for a brother pairing that could be a first. Archie Miller, who coaches the Flyers, is the younger brother of Arizona coach Sean Miller. It is believed to be the first time brothers have had teams ranked in the Top 25 at the same time.
