      Syracuse remains #1 in AP poll, Florida jumps to #2


      Syracuse is still No. 1 in the AP college basketball poll, but it is no longer a unanimous choice.


      The Orange (25-0), who won two games in the final seconds last week, are on top for a third straight week but they received 64 first-place votes Monday from the 65-member national media panel. They were a unanimous choice the last two weeks.


      Florida (23-2), which won at Kentucky on Saturday, moved from third to second and received the other first-place vote.


      Wichita State (27-0), the only other unbeaten Division I team, stayed third while Arizona, which lost to Arizona State last week, dropped from second to fourth.


      Duke moved from eighth to fifth and was followed by San Diego State, Cincinnati, Kansas, Villanova and Saint Louis.


      UCLA, at No. 23, and Gonzaga, at No. 25, return to the rankings replacing SMU and Pittsburgh.



      The top 25 teams in The Associated Press' college basketball poll, with first-place votes in parentheses, records through Feb. 16, total points based on 25 points for a first-place vote through one point for a 25th-place vote and last week's ranking:
