For the first time in more than eight years, Duke is not in The Associated Press Top 25.

The Blue Devils are 15-6 and have lost four of five, including two home games. They had been in every men's poll since the preseason rankings of 2007-08. The record run is UCLA's 221 straight polls from 1966-80.

Oklahoma is 18-2 and is No. 1 for the third straight week, receiving 45 first-place votes from the 65-member national media panel on Monday. North Carolina is 19-2 and stays second, with 20 No. 1 votes.

Villanova jumps three places to third and is followed in the top 10 by Maryland, Iowa, Xavier, Kansas, Texas A&M, Virginia and Michigan State.

No. 24 Dayton and No. 25 South Carolina are this week's newcomers, replacing Duke and Notre Dame.
