Indiana held on to the No. 1 spot in both major polls, which were released Monday.

The Hoosiers (23-3) got 43 of 65 first place votes in the AP media poll. No. 2 Miami (21-3) moved up a spot from last week and received 20 top votes. No. 3 Gonzaga (25-2) received the remaining two votes as it climbed two spots.

Indiana received 19 of 31 first place votes in the USA Today coaches poll. No. 2 Miami got seven votes, No. 3 Gonzaga three and No. 4 Florida two.

Michigan State leaped from eighth to No. 4 in the AP poll after wins over Michigan and Nebraska. The Spartans (22-4) were No. 5 in the coaches poll. Michigan State takes on visiting Indiana Tuesday.

Florida moved up from seventh to No. 5 in the AP poll and Duke fell from second to No. 6 in both polls after a loss at Maryland.

The rest of the top 10 was identical in both polls: No. 7 Michigan, No. 8 Syracuse, No. 9 Kansas and No. 10 Louisville.

Virginia Commonwealth climbed into the AP top 25 at No. 24. The Rams replaced Kentucky, which fell out of the No. 25 spot after losing to Florida and Tennessee last week. VCU is also No. 24 in the coaches poll.
