Michigan (11-0), which received the other No. 1 votes, and Syracuse moved up one place each to second and third.
They were followed in the top 10 by Arizona, Louisville, Indiana, Ohio State, Florida, Kansas and Illinois.
Butler (8-2), which beat then-No. 9 North Carolina last month in the EA Sports Maui Invitational, moved into the poll at No. 19. This is the Bulldogs’ first appearance in the rankings since the first week of 2010-11.
Wichita State (9-1) dropped out from 23rd after losing 69-60 at Tennessee. The Shockers spent two weeks in the rankings.
North Carolina, with 107 weeks, is the only other school ranked No. 1 for at least 100 polls.
