For the fifth straight week there is a new No. 1 in The Associated Press' college basketball poll. This time it's Indiana.

The Hoosiers, the preseason No. 1 who held the top spot for the first five weeks of the regular season, moved up two places Monday, following their weekend win over No. 1 Michigan and No. 2 Kansas' loss to Oklahoma State.

Duke started the current streak of new No. 1s and was followed by Louisville, Duke again, Michigan and Indiana. The last time there were five No. 1s in as many weeks was the last five polls of 2008-09 when it was Connecticut, Pittsburgh, Connecticut again, North Carolina and Louisville.

The Hoosiers received 58 first-place votes from the 65-member national media panel while Florida, which jumped two spots to second, got the other seven.

Michigan fell to third and was followed by Duke, Kansas, Gonzaga, Arizona, Miami, Syracuse and Ohio State.

There were four newcomers to the poll this week: Georgetown, Oklahoma State, Pittsburgh and Notre Dame, all of whom were ranked at some point this season. They replaced Wichita State and Mississippi, which both lost two games last week and fell from 15th and 16th, North Carolina State, which was No. 6 in the preseason poll and also lost twice last week, and San Diego State.

With the return of Georgetown, Pittsburgh and Notre Dame the Big East has seven teams ranked in the Top 25, two more than the Big Ten.

The top 25 teams in The Associated Press' college basketball poll, with first-place votes in parentheses, records through Feb. 3, total points based on 25 points for a first-place vote through one point for a 25th-place vote and last week's ranking:
