Duke reclaimed the top spot in Monday’s AP Top 25, the third time this season they’ve reached No. 1.
Duke earned 58 of 64 first-place votes to climb one spot and replace Tennessee, which had spent four weeks at No. 1 but fell to fifth after Saturday’s loss at Kentucky. Duke has now spent nearly half of the season’s polls at No. 1, and hasn’t been ranked lower than fourth since the preseason.
Gonzaga moved up a spot to No. 2, followed by Virginia. Nevada, Michigan, UNC, Houston and Michigan State rounded out the top 10.
