Duke held onto its comfortable lead in The Associated Press college basketball poll while Cincinnati and California are newcomers in the first regular-season poll.
The Blue Devils (2-0) received 58 first-place votes from the 65-member national media panel Monday, keeping their large lead over Kentucky, which was No. 1 on one ballot.
Defending champion Villanova received five first-place votes and moved up one place to third, replacing Kansas, one of three ranked teams that lost last week. Oregon and North Carolina both moved up one spot to fourth and fifth, while Indiana, which beat Kansas 103-99 in overtime, jumped from 11th to sixth. The Hoosiers were No. 1 on one ballot.
Kansas was seventh followed by Virginia, Wisconsin and Arizona, which beat then-No. 12 Michigan State.
