The top four teams in The Associated Press' college basketball poll held their places from last week. The bottom of the Top 25, however, had three new teams.
North Carolina was again a unanimous No. 1 Monday as it has been since the preseason poll. Connecticut, Pittsburgh and Oklahoma stayed second through fourth.
Minnesota moved in at No. 23, the Gophers' first appearance in the poll since 2002. No. 24 Michigan was ranked for the first time since 2006. No. 25 Missouri was in the Top 25 for the first time since 2003.
Davidson, Memphis and Marquette dropped out of the poll. They were ranked 22nd through 24th and all lost to another ranked team last week. Memphis had been ranked every week since the preseason poll of 2005-06.
