Arizona and Syracuse lead the same top five teams in The Associated Press' college basketball poll for the fourth straight week.

The Wildcats (13-0) saw their lead in first-place votes change for the first time Monday. They received 60 No. 1 votes from the 65-member national media panel, three less than they got the last three weeks.

Syracuse (12-0), which beat previously unbeaten Villanova on Saturday, were No. 1 on the other five ballots.

The three Big Ten schools — Ohio State, Wisconsin and Michigan State — remained third through fifth.

Oklahoma State moved up one spot to sixth while Duke, Wichita State, Baylor and Oregon all jumped two places to round out the top 10.

Louisville, which lost at Kentucky on Saturday, dropped from sixth to No. 14 while Villanova fell three places to 11th with the loss at Syracuse.
