Duke took a week off from its perch atop the rankings, but are back on top in the latest AP Poll.

A week after dropping to No. 3 following their loss to N.C. State, the Blue Devils are again ranked No. 1. Last week’s No. 1 Louisville lost to Syracuse and Indiana, the No. 2 team, lost to Wisconsin.

Duke received 39 of the 65 first-place votes while No. 2 Michigan received 11. Kansas and Syracuse, tied for third, received seven and eight first-place votes, respectively.

The current top 10, in order, is as follows: Duke, Michigan, Kansas, Syracuse, Louisville, Arizona, Indiana, Florida, Butler and Gonzaga.

N.C. State fell to Maryland last week and dropped from No. 14 to No. 18. Miami benefited from a number of losses in the bottom of the rankings and is now No. 25, placing three ACC teams in the top 25.

The Blue Devils travel to Coral Gables, Fla. for game Wednesday night against the newly-ranked Hurricanes.
