Arizona still No. 1 in AP poll
Arizona is No. 1 in The Associated Press college basketball poll for the third straight week.
The Wildcats (12-0) are again a runaway choice, receiving 63 No. 1 votes from the 65-member national media panel Monday.
Syracuse drew the other No. 1 votes and was No. 2, with the top eight teams holding their spots from last week.
Ohio State is third followed by Wisconsin, Michigan State, Louisville, Oklahoma State and Villanova. Duke drops to ninth after it was tied for eighth last week with Villanova. Wichita State is No. 10, its first top 10 ranking since spending two weeks at No. 8 in December 2006.
The rest of the Top 25 teams remained the same despite Nos. 20-23 -- Colorado, Gonzaga, Massachusetts and Missouri -- all losing a game.
