The Blue Devils (18-1) moved up one place Monday, their first appearance at No. 1 since the final poll of 2005-06. Only UCLA has been top-ranked more in the 59-year history of the poll.
This is Duke's 111th week at No. 1, 23 behind UCLA. The Blue Devils were ranked No. 1 at least one week every season from 1997-98 to 2003-04 and have been there in nine of the past 12 seasons.
Connecticut and Pittsburgh moved up one place each to second and third. Wake Forest dropped from No. 1 to No. 6 after a loss to Virginia Tech.
Pittsburgh was No. 1 for two weeks before Wake Forest.
