UNDATED (AP) _ The Florida Gators remain the number-one team in the weekly Associated Press men's college basketball poll.

But the big news involves a team not in the poll. That team is Duke. For the first time in 201 weeks, the Blue Devils are not among the top-25.

Following the Gators, who were a unanimous choice for the second straight week, are the Ohio State Buckeyes with fellow Big-10 school Wisconsin third, North Carolina fourth and UCLA fifth.

The second five this week consists of Texas A&M, Pittsburgh, Memphis, Kansas and Washington State.

The next ten schools are Nevada, Marquette, Butler, Georgetown, Oregon, Southern Illinois, Air Force, Oklahoma State, Arizona and Kentucky.

The bottom five are Boston College, Southern California, West Virginia, Indiana and Alabama.
