Indiana is No. 1 for a sixth straight week in The Associated Press college basketball poll.

The Hoosiers are again followed in the Top 25 by Duke, Michigan and Syracuse. The only changes in Monday's poll is the order, not who's ranked.

The Hoosiers (9-0) received 44 first-place votes from the 64-member national media panel. Duke (9-0) again drew the other No. 1 votes.

Florida and Louisville switched places at fifth and sixth. They were followed by Ohio State, Arizona, Kansas and Illinois. The Illini (10-0) beat fellow unbeaten Gonzaga on Saturday, moving into the top 10 for the first time since the next-to-last poll of 2005-06. Gonzaga dropped to 14th.

The Big Ten has the most ranked teams with six. The Big East has five and the Atlantic Coast Conference and Mountain West three each.
