NEW YORK — Duke remains atop the AP top 25 poll with few major changes after a light Christmas week schedule of games.

Second-ranked Michigan earned nine first-place votes, while No. 3 Tennessee earned 12. Fourth-ranked Virginia and fifth-ranked Kansas each earned four votes to round out the poll's top tier.

Kentucky was the highest-ranked climber, rising three spots to No. 13.

No. 22 Wisconsin fell seven spots after losing to Western Kentucky, while Arizona State fell out after losing to Princeton. Nebraska was the lone addition at No. 24, though the Cornhuskers were ranked twice earlier this month.
