Top Stays the Same in First AP Poll
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.
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.
