Tennessee remains at No. 1 for the third straight week and the top four are unchanged in The Associated Press men's basketball poll.

Losses by Michigan and Michigan State led to a shake-up in the rest of the top 10.

The Volunteers received 48 of 64 first-place votes from a media panel in the poll released Monday. No. 2 Duke had 12 first-place votes and No. 3 Virginia four. Gonzaga and Kentucky rounded out the top 5.

Michigan dropped two spots to No. 7 after losing to Iowa. Michigan State fell three spots to No. 9 following a loss to Indiana, which had lost its previous seven games.

No. 5 Kentucky, No. 6 Nevada and No. 8 North Carolina all moved up because of the losses.

No. 25 Cincinnati moved into the AP Top 25 for the first time this season.

The top 25 teams in The Associated Press' college basketball poll, with first-place votes in parentheses, records through Feb. 3, total points based on 25 points for a first-place vote through one point for a 25th-place vote and last week's ranking:
