The Associated Press
Duke is again No. 1 in The Associated Press men's basketball poll, although for the first time in three weeks it's not unanimous. Central Florida joins the Top 25 for the first time in school history.
The Blue Devils were off last week and received all but one of the first-place votes Monday from the 65-member national media panel.
No. 2 Ohio State has the other first-place vote and is followed by Kansas, Connecticut and Syracuse. Completing the top 10 are Pittsburgh, San Diego State, Villanova, Missouri and Georgetown.
Florida rejoins the poll at No. 20 after being out two weeks. UCF is 10-0 and ranked No. 24.
Tennessee drops from No. 7 to No. 19 after losing twice -- to Oakland, Mich., and Charlotte. UNLV and Louisville fell from the poll.
