MADISON (AP) -

Kentucky is still the unanimous No. 1 team in the AP Top 25 poll.

The Wildcats (11-0) got all 65 first-place votes in the new poll Monday. The top seven spots are unchanged from a week ago.

Duke, Arizona, Louisville and Wisconsin round out the top five, followed by Virginia and Villanova. Gonzaga and Texas swapped spots from last week and Kansas is 10th.

Kentucky last week lost forward Alex Poythress for the season after he tore a knee ligament in practice. The Wildcats responded Saturday with an 84-70 win over North Carolina, which is down three spots to 24th in the new rankings.

The only poll newcomer is No. 25 Michigan State, ranked again after a one-week absence.

Northern Iowa dropped out after a double-overtime loss to VCU.
