The Associated Press released their preseason top 25 on Monday, and Duke, to no one's surprise, is the top team in the land.

The Blue Devils, who return All-American Grayson Allen, and a wealth of talent from a team that went 25-11 a season ago, advancing to the Sweet Sixteen of the NCAA Tournament, before being eliminated by Oregon, received 58 of a possible 65 first-place votes.

The Kentucky Wildcats, who went 27-9 last year, and received two first-place votes, checks in at number two.

Kansas is ranked third. The Jayhawks, went 33-5 in the 2015-2016 season.

The Villanova Wildcats, the defending national champions, who received four first-place votes, are ranked fourth in the poll.

The Oregon Ducks, coming off of a 31-win campaign, round out the top five.

North Carolina, Xavier, Virginia, Wisconsin, and Arizona are ranked 6-10, respectively.

At 11-15, it's Indiana, Michigan St., Louisville, Gonzaga, and Purdue, followed by UCLA, St. Mary's, Connecticut, Syracuse, and West Virginia at 16-20.

Finally, at 21-25, it's Texas, Creighton, Rhode Island, Iowa St., and Maryland, respectively.
