      Syracuse moves up to 6th in latest AP college basketball poll


      Indiana is still a runaway No. 1 in The Associated Press college basketball poll and Louisville is again a solid second. Then come the changes, with Kentucky dropping five spots to eighth.


      The Hoosiers (3-0) receive 46 first-place votes Monday from the 65-member national media panel. The Cardinals (5-0) get the other 19 No. 1 votes.


      Ohio State and Michigan both move up one place to third and fourth, while Duke, which beat Kentucky, jumps from ninth to fifth. Syracuse, Florida, Kentucky, North Carolina and Arizona round out the Top Ten.


      Oklahoma State, at No. 20, and Colorado, at 23, are the week's newcomers, replacing Notre Dame and Wisconsin. The Cowboys (4-0) were last ranked during the 2006-07 season. Colorado (4-0) was last in the Top 25 when the Buffaloes were ranked for the final eight polls of 1996-97.


      The top 25 teams in The Associated Press' college basketball poll, with first-place votes in parentheses, records through Nov. 18, total points based on 25 points for a first-place vote through one point for a 25th-place vote and last week's ranking:
