UNLV is atop the Associated Press basketball poll for the 12th straight week.
UNLV (18-0), the only unbeaten Division I team, received all 63 first-place votes and 1,575 points from a panel of sportswriters and sportscasters.
Nos. 2-3-4 remained unchanged as well, with Arkansas (22-1), Ohio State (18-1) and Indiana (20-2) occupying those spots. UNLV will play at Arkansas on Sunday, and Coach Jerry Tarkanian admits he's thinking about the 1-2 matchup.
"I'd be lying if I said I wasn't," he said. First, the Runnin' Rebels have to play Fresno State on Thursday.
UNLV kept its record intact on Sunday with a 115-73 rout of Rutgers. The Rebels were unanimous No. 1 picks three weeks in a row until last week, when Ohio State got two first-place votes.
Oklahoma State (15-4), meanwhile, moved into the rankings for the first time this season at No. 22 after an 81-68 victory over Nebraska. There is one other new poll member, No. 25 Michigan State (13-6), which was ranked twice previously this season and as high as No. 4 in preseason.
Arkansas, coming off a 100-87 victory over Rice, had 1,512 points, followed by Ohio State with 1,405 and Indiana with 1,392. Ohio State lost to Michigan State, 75-61, earlier in the week, and Indiana is coming off a 77-66 victory over Minnesota.
Arizona (18-3) was fifth, followed by Duke (18-4) and Syracuse (19-3), each up a spot. St. John's (16-3) was fifth last week but fell to eighth after losing, 59-53, at Georgetown. North Carolina (15-3) and Kentucky (17-3) round out the top Ten.
Virginia (16-4) is No. 11, followed by Southern Mississippi (14-2), East Tennessee State (18-2), UCLA (16-5), Nebraska (18-3), New Mexico State (16-2), Utah (20-2), Kansas (15-4), LSU (13-6), Georgetown (13-6), New Orleans (19-3), Oklahoma State, Oklahoma (15-6), Pittsburgh (15-7) and Michigan State.
