NCAA Basketball Rankings: Duke Is Once Again Unanimous No.1 In AP Top 25

Duke reclaimed the one first place vote that it lost last week to become once again a unanimous choice for the No.1 slot in the AP Top 25. Ohio State, Kansas, UConn, and Syracuse round out the top-five.

In the SEC Florida and Tennessee both dropped out of the poll due to their recent struggles. Kentucky moves up two places to No.11 while Vanderbilt debuts at No. 24. 

The Blue-Devils remain the lone entry from the ACC with both Florida State and North Carolina both receiving votes this week.
