(AP) – For the third straight week Duke is the runaway No. 1 in The Associated Press’ Top 25, and for the first time in 16 years Minnesota is in the top 10.

The Blue Devils (12-0) received all but two first-place votes from the 65-member media panel on Monday. The next five teams — Michigan, Arizona, Louisville, Indiana and Kansas — held their places from last week. Syracuse, Ohio State, Minnesota and Gonzaga rounded out the top 10.

Michigan (13-0) was No. 1 on two ballots for the second straight week. Minnesota is in the top 10 for the first time since it was third in the final poll of 1996-97.

New Mexico, which won at undefeated Cincinnati, returns to the rankings at No. 20 after being out for one week. The Lobos replace UNLV, which dropped out from 20th after losing at North Carolina.
