The Associated Press Top 25 Men's College Basketball poll came out Monday morning, and there's no surprises at the top. North Carolina remains in the top spot with a 3-0 record, including a 101-75 trashing of Miss. Valley St. on Sunday. North Carolina pulled 62 of the 65 first-place votes. Kentucky ended up in second with a 4-0 mark, but received no first-place votes.

The Ohio State Buckeyes rounded out the top three and had one first place vote to their credit. They're sitting at 3-0 on the season, including a dominating 84-41 win over Jackson St. on Friday. The other two first place votes went to Connecticut at number four, and the whole top five was rounded out by Syracuse.

For ESPN and USA Today, their top five remains the same, but Ohio State didn't receive any of their 31 first-place votes, and one of them went to Kentucky, while North Carolina took 30 of them.
