North Carolina remains the unanimous No. 1 in The Associated Press' Top 25, and the week's lone newcomer is Butler at No. 25.
The Bulldogs (10-1), who move in Monday coming off their upset win at Xavier, are no strangers to the poll. Butler was ranked all last season, except for the preseason poll, and reached as high as No. 8.
Connecticut, Pittsburgh, Oklahoma, Duke, Wake Forest, Notre Dame, Texas, Purdue and Michigan State round out the top 10.
Missouri (10-2), which moved in at No. 25 last week for the first time in five years then lost 75-59 to Illinois, was the only team to drop out of the rankings this week.
