Connecticut jumped from No. 2 to the top spot in The Associated Press' Top 25 Monday, replacing Duke. This is the Huskies' first time at No. 1 since 2006.
The last three No. 1s all remained in the top seven: No. 6 Pittsburgh, No. 7 Wake Forest and No. 4 Duke. The Blue Devils lost last week to Wake Forest on a last-second shot.
Connecticut received 64 first-place votes from the 72-member national media panel. Oklahoma was No. 1 on five ballots.
North Carolina moved from fifth to third in the rankings. Completing the top 10 were Duke, Louisville, Pittsburgh, Wake Forest, Marquette, Xavier and Clemson.
