Arizona is No. 1 in The Associated Press college basketball poll for the fifth straight week, but for the first time in that span there are changes in the Top 25.

The Wildcats (15-0) were still a runaway No. 1, with Syracuse, Ohio State, Wisconsin and Michigan State remaining the next four teams. Arizona received 60 first-place votes from the national media panel, while Syracuse (14-0) got the other five.

Wichita State was sixth, followed by Baylor, Villanova, Iowa State and Florida.

Duke, which lost at Notre Dame, dropped to No. 16, the first time the Blue Devils are out of the Top 10 since December 2007.

No. 23 Illinois and No. 25 Kansas State moved into the rankings for the first time this season replacing Connecticut, which had been 17th, and North Carolina, which was 19th.
