IU men still No. 5; Michigan, Ohio State, Minnesota also in top 10

For the third straight week Duke is the runaway No. 1 in the Associated Press’ Top 25, and for the first time in 16 years Minnesota is in the top 10.

The Blue Devils (12-0) received all but two first-place votes from the 65-member media panel on Monday.

The next five teams – Michigan, Arizona, Louisville, Indiana and Kansas – held their places from last week. Syracuse, Ohio State, Minnesota and Gonzaga rounded out the top 10.

Michigan (13-0) was No. 1 on two ballots for the second straight week. Minnesota is in the top 10 for the first time since it was third in the final poll of 1996-97.

New Mexico, which won at undefeated Cincinnati, returns to the rankings at No. 20 after being out for a week. The Lobos replace UNLV, which dropped out from 20th after losing at North Carolina.
