Purdue is No. 1 in The Associated Press men's college basketball poll for the first time.

The Boilermakers were a unanimous No. 1 in the poll to move up from No. 2 last week.

Reigning national champion Baylor moved up to No. 1, with Duke, UCLA and Gonzaga rounding out the top five.

Purdue reached No. 2 in consecutive seasons under Gene Keady from 1986-88 and matched its previous high last week, receiving nine first-place votes from a 61-person media panel.
