Duke is again a unanimous No. 1 in The Associated Press’ college basketball poll following a week that saw 12 ranked teams lose.

The Blue Devils received all 65 first-place votes Monday from the national media panel. Ohio State, Kansas, Syracuse, Pittsburgh, San Diego State and Villanova held on to second through seventh.

Purdue, Notre Dame and Connecticut round out the top 10.

There are four newcomers this week. Louisville and Temple were already ranked this season. No. 20 Wisconsin is in for the first time since last season’s final poll, while No. 24 Georgia is ranked for the first time since the final poll of 2002-03.

Michigan State is one of the teams knocked out, the first time the Spartans haven’t been ranked since the final poll of 2006-07.

The Big East has five teams in the top 10 and eight ranked overall, one off its record set in January 2009.
