The Blue Devils reclaimed the top spot in Monday's AP Top 25, the third time this season they've reached No. 1.
Duke earned 58 of 64 first-place votes to climb one spot and replace Tennessee, which had spent four weeks at No. 1 but fell to fifth after Saturday's loss at Kentucky.
THE TOP TIER Gonzaga (25-2) earned the remaining six first-place votes and moved up a spot to No. 2, followed by Virginia and coach John Calipari's Wildcats -- who have made a long climb back after falling from No. 2 following the Duke loss to as low as No. 19 in mid-December.
CONFERENCE WATCH The Atlantic Coast Conference and the Big Ten took up nearly half the spots in this week's Top 25.
The ACC has six ranked teams in Duke, Virginia, UNC, No. 16 Florida State, No. 18 Louisville and No. 20 Virginia Tech.
