The 2019-20 college basketball season is underway and its time for the latest Top 25 poll from the Associated Press. On Monday, November 18, the AP Top 25 poll for Week 3 was released with the Duke Blue Devils moving from No. 2 to No. 1 after a 4-0 start to the new year.
Last week’s No. 1 team, the Kentucky Wildcats, fell to No. 9 after a brutal loss to Evansville.
The Tennessee Volunteers, Virginia Commonwealth, and Texas Longhorns all jumped into the Top 25 poll after being unranked a week ago. All three of the teams remain unbeaten through the opening three weeks of the season.

About the Associated Press Top 25 Poll
The Associated Press college basketball poll started on Jan. 20, 1949. The original poll had 20 teams, with Saint Louis the first school to hold the No. 1 ranking. From the 1961-62 season through 1967-68 only 10 teams were ranked. It expanded again to 20 teams from 1968-69 through 1988-89. The Top 25 began the next season, and it has stayed at that number ever since. The AP’s final poll is released after the field for the NCAA Tournament is selected.
