New York, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - Arizona is the top team in the Associated Press men's college basketball poll for the fifth consecutive week.

The Wildcats once again received 60 first-place votes and a total of 1,620 points from a national media panel. Syracuse picked up the remaining five first-place votes for a second straight week to keep the No. 2 spot.

The top five teams remained unchanged, with the Orange followed by Ohio State, Wisconsin and Michigan State.

The rest of the poll saw a bit of shuffling.

The second 10 consists of Oklahoma State, Louisville, San Diego State, Kentucky, Colorado, Duke, Oregon, Kansas, Massachusetts and Iowa. Oklahoma State fell five spots to 11th and Duke plummeted from seventh to 16th, the first time the Blue Devils are out of the Top 10 since December 2007. Oregon tumbled seven places to 17th.

San Diego State, meanwhile, vaulted eight spots to 13th.

Missouri, Gonzaga, Illinois, Memphis and Kansas State are the last five teams ranked. Illinois and Kansas State both moved into the rankings for the first time this season, replacing Connecticut and North Carolina.
