      Syracuse moves up to #8 in AP poll after Midway win


      The opening weekend of the 2012-13 college basketball season did little to change The Associated Press' Top 25.


      Led by Indiana and Louisville, the first seven teams in the initial regular-season poll were the same as the preseason Top 25. The Hoosiers (1-0) were again a solid No. 1, receiving 46 first-place votes from the 65-member national media panel. Louisville (1-0) was No. 1 on 18 ballots.


      Kentucky (1-0), which received one first-place vote, was third, followed by Ohio State, Michigan, North Carolina State and Kansas.


      Syracuse and Duke swapped places at eighth and ninth and Florida again rounded out the top 10.


      The only newcomer to the poll is Connecticut (1-0), which jumped in at No. 23 after beating then-No. 14 Michigan State (0-1) in a game played in Germany. Florida State (0-1), which lost 76-71 to South Alabama, dropped out from 25th.



      The top 25 teams in The Associated Press' college basketball poll, with first-place votes in parentheses, records through Nov. 11, total points based on 25 points for a first-place vote through one point for a 25th-place vote and last week's ranking:
