Oklahoma State remained at No. 24 in The Associated Press' Top 25 on Monday after beating Central Arkansas on Sunday.

Duke, meanwhile, is back in a familiar place — No. 1.

The Blue Devils advanced one spot to replace Indiana at the top of the poll, drawing closer to UCLA's record for most No. 1 rankings.

In the women's poll, Oklahoma State moved up one spot to No. 15, while Oklahoma tumbled to No. 18 after losing to senior Whitney Hand to another ACL injury and losing to Vanderbilt on Sunday.

Stanford remains No. 1 in the women's poll for the fifth straight week. Baylor is No. 3 after receiving just two first-place votes.

Indiana (9-1) held the top spot from the preseason poll through the first five weeks of the season. Butler, led by former Verdigris star Rotnei Clarke, beat the Hoosiers 88-86 in overtime Saturday. The Blue Devils (9-0), who were off last week, received 62 first-place votes from the 65-member national media panel.

This is the 123rd week Duke has been No. 1, 11 weeks behind UCLA.

Michigan (11-0), which received the other No. 1 votes, and Syracuse moved up one place each to second and third. They were followed in the top 10 by Arizona, Louisville, Indiana, Ohio State, Florida, Kansas and Illinois.
