My AP Top 25 this week

UConn looks to go 1-1 against the Ivies this season on Monday night in Bridgeport. Unlike last year's bout at Webster Bank Arena, which drew the largest crowd to a sporting event in the building's history, this game likely won't be a sellout.

Don't sleep on the Ivy League this year. Brown beat Providence, Columbia gave Kentucky its toughest challenge to date, and, of course, Yale beat UConn. The Huskies, obviously, are in no position to overlook any opponent, and desperately need a win on Monday night.

Still, no Ivy League teams in my Top 25 this week. No AAC teams, either. Briefly considered SMU ... but not yet.

Just a couple of changes: Miami's out after getting thrashed at home by Eastern Kentucky. Butler's also gone, after losing to Indiana. Tough to rank a three-loss team right now (though I do have a few here):

1. Kentucky
2. Duke
3. Arizona
4. Louisville
5. Wisconsin
6. Villanova
7. Virginia
8. Texas
9. Gonzaga
10. Wichita State
11. Kansas
12. Iowa State
13. Utah
14. West Virginia
15. Ohio State
16. Maryland
17. Notre Dame
18. Texas Christian
19. St. John's
20. Washington
21. Oklahoma
22. San Diego State
23. North Carolina
24. Northern Iowa
25. Old Dominion
