DURHAM, N.C. (AP) — For the first time in almost 30 years, both Duke basketball teams — men and women — are unranked at the same time.

The Blue Devils' men's team on Monday fell out of the Top 25, ending a run of 221 consecutive weeks that started early in the 2007-08 season.

They joined the women, who fell out two weeks ago to end a string of 312 straight weeks that dated to 1999.

It's the first time since the next-to-last poll of December 1986 — back when the polls only included 20 teams — that both teams are unranked.
