The first poll of college basketball's regular season looks a lot like the preseason Top 25.

Duke was again a runaway No. 1 on Monday, receiving 58 first-place votes, three more than it had in The Associated Press' preseason rankings.

The Blue Devils, the defending national champions, opened the season Sunday with a 37-point win over Princeton.

The same teams were in the poll, with eight schools switching places. The 25 teams were a combined 31-0 in the first week of play, with Missouri the only one without at least one win. The Missouri Tigers, who begin regular season play Thursday, actually moved up one spot to No. 14 in the USA Today coaches' poll.

There should be plenty of movement in next week's poll. At least three games between ranked teams are scheduled this week.
