Duke is once again on top of the college basketball world.

The Blue Devils are the new No. 1 in the AP Top 25 poll. Duke jumped for No. 3 to the top thanks to losses from the previous top two teams. Louisville was No. 1 last week, but lost to Syracuse, 70-68, to fall in the poll to No. 5. Indiana was the No. 2 team this time last week, but a loss to Wisconsin, 64-59, has the Hoosiers falling to No. 7.

Michigan jumped three spots to No. 2, while Kansas slid up one spot to No. 3. With the win over the Cardinals, the Orange jumped up three spots to earn a third-place tie with the Jayhawks.

Arizona is No. 6, falling in between Louisville and Indiana.

The biggest mover this week was Wichita State, which jumped up six spots to No. 20. The Shockers beat Illinois State and Creighton last week and are now 17-2.
