Michigan State remained No. 3 in this week's Associated Press Top 25 college basketball poll, released Monday.

Duke solidified its grip on No. 1 while Maryland jumped North Carolina into the top 5 after a relatively quiet week on the schedule.

That could change with an abundance of holiday tournaments tipping off this week.

The Blue Devils blew through California before beating Georgetown 81-73 on Friday to win the 2K Empire Classic at Madison Square Garden. Those performances on back-to-back nights helped earn Duke 53 first-place votes from a 65-member media panel .

Louisville received seven first-place votes and remained second, followed by Michigan State with four No. 1 nods. Kansas remained fourth while Virginia received the other No. 1 vote and was seventh.

The Spartans (3-1) won their only game last week, demolishing Charleston Southern, 94-46, in East Lansing as part of the Maui Invitational. Michigan State plays Virginia Tech on Monday in Maui.  

Gonzaga, Kentucky and Ohio State rounded out the top 10.

Florida re-entered the AP Top 25 at No. 24 while Texas fell out.

Michigan (4-0) remains unranked, but collected 12 points in this week's poll.

In the coaches' poll, Michigan State stays No. 3 and Michigan is unranked, but still collected votes.
