(TSX / STATS) -- Arizona State continued its ascent by moving up to a school high-tying No. 3 in The Associated Press Top 25 poll, which was released on Monday.

The undefeated Sun Devils, who also were third in the poll in both 1963 and 1981, jumped up two spots and moved past preseason No. 1 Duke (11-1). Arizona State overcame a 13-0 deficit and posted a 76-64 win over Vanderbilt on Sunday to improve to 10-0 for the first time in the program's history.

"We just want to take it one game at a time and win," guard Tra Holder said after scoring 25 points versus the Commodores. "We're just enjoying it, going with the process. Hopefully we can keep it going and make some more history."
