The opening of the regular season brought little change to the Associated Press Top 25.
After a week in which 14 ranked teams played their first games, the only changes Monday in the weekly poll were a couple of position swaps.
The first 17 teams held their spots from last week. The only changes were Wake Forest and Cincinnati at 18 and 19 and Oklahoma State and North Carolina State at 24 and 25.
Teams were allowed to play their first regular-season games Friday. Before that they were only allowed to play in events such as the Coaches vs. Cancer Classic.
Connecticut, which opened the season this week with wins over Yale, Nevada and Sacred Heart, was again the runaway No. 1. The Huskies received 69 first-place votes and 1,797 points from the national media panel.
Duke, which beat Detroit, was No. 1 on one ballot and had 1,666. Michigan State, a winner over Bucknell in its opener, also had a first-place vote and was third.
Arizona and Missouri were fourth and fifth, respectively, and Kansas, the only other team with a No. 1 vote, was sixth. Syracuse, Florida, North Carolina and Kentucky rounded out the Top 10.
ECKERD: Senior forward Marcus Bryant of St. Petersburg was selected Sunshine State Conference player of the week after averaging 24.3 points and 15 rebounds in three games in which the Tritons posted a 1-2 record.
MICHIGAN STATE: Freshman point guard Brandon Cotton likely will miss at least a month with a possible stress fracture in his right foot. Cotton was a McDonald's All-American last season.
