North Carolina continues to dominate the AP Top 25 poll.

The Associated Press released its latest NCAA College Basketball Top 25 rankings Monday, revealing few changes. Nine of the ten teams in last week's top ten remain there this week; the Pittsburgh Panthers dropped from No. 9 to No. 17, while the Baylor Bears took their place by improving from No. 11 to No. 9. The order of the top six team hasn't changed, as the North Carolina Tar Heels lead the way, receiving 62 of a possible 65 first-place votes. Despite not earning any first-place votes, the Kentucky Wildcats stand at No. 2 once again. The Ohio St. Buckeyes, Connecticut Huskies, Syracuse Orange, and Duke Blue Devils round out the top six.

No teams from the Washington, D.C. area figure in the AP rankings. The Atlantic Coast Conference, where the Maryland Terrapins play, is well represented; North Carolina, Duke, and the No. 22 Florida St. Seminoles all represent it in the most recent poll.

The Big East Conference, which features the Georgetown Hoyas, also places several teams in the most recent top 25. Connectucut, Pittsburgh, and Syracuse also appear.
