Arizona, Syracuse stay 1-2 in AP Top 25

— Arizona remains the runaway No. 1 in The Associated Press' college basketball poll after winning a close game at Michigan on Saturday.

The Wildcats (11-0), who won 72-70, received all but two of the first-place votes from the 65-member national media panel Monday.

Syracuse (10-0) got the other two No. 1 votes and remains second in a poll, with the top eight teams holding the same spot from last week.

Ohio State is third followed by Wisconsin, Michigan State, Louisville and Oklahoma State.

Duke and Villanova, which moved up two spots, were tied for eighth, while Connecticut dropped one spot to round out the top 10.

North Carolina, which beat Kentucky 82-77 on Saturday, moved from 18th to No. 14. The loss dropped the Wildcats, the preseason No. 1, from 11th to No. 19.
