College basketball rankings: Duke, Michigan, Tennessee, Virginia and Kansas receive first-place votes in AP Top 25 poll

The calendar will close on 2018 with Duke as the No. 1 team in college basketball.

The latest AP Poll, released Monday afternoon, still has the Blue Devils atop the rankings. There was no change in teams Nos. 1-12 in this week's poll. Kentucky, at  No. 13, jumps up three spots after getting a road win against Louisville on Saturday. 

Arizona State's home loss to Princeton drops it from the rankings, meaning no Pac-12 team is represented in this week's poll. Replacing ASU in the rankings is Nebraska, which jumps back in after two weeks away from the Top 25.
