MADISON (AP) -

Kentucky is still No. 1, and this time on top of every ballot.

The Wildcats (9-0) became a unanimous No. 1 team in the new AP poll Monday, getting the first-place votes on all 64 ballots cast.

Syracuse spent two weeks as a unanimous No. 1 last season.

Wisconsin had been getting some first-place votes before its 80-70 loss last week to Duke. The Badgers slipped from second to fifth in the new rankings.

Duke (8-0) replaced Wisconsin at No. 2, jumping ahead of No. 3 Arizona (8-0), which stayed undefeated with a 66-63 overtime victory against No. 9 Gonzaga over the weekend.

Louisville was up one spot to fourth. Virginia, Villanova, Texas, Gonzaga and Kansas rounded out the top 10.
