For the second straight week, the Virginia Cavaliers have come in at No. 2 in the AP Poll, behind just Villanova. The Wahoos had a big week with two conference road wins as the Hoos traveled to Georgia Tech and Wake Forest. Virginia is now 18-1 on the season and hold a 7-0 record in conference, the only ACC team to remain undefeated in league play.
Kentucky, at No. 18 last week, dropped out of the poll following two straight losses. It’s the first time since March of 2014 that the Wildcats aren’t ranked, breaking a streak of 68 straight weeks.
Purdue held their place in third, followed by Duke at No. 4 and Kansas at No. 5. Oklahoma dropped from No. 4 all the way to No. 12 (down eight spots).
The ACC was represented with four teams, led by Virginia and Duke. North Carolina (No. 10) and Clemson (No. 18) were the other two ACC squads. The Big Ten and Big 12 also had four teams, the SEC added three, and the AAC, Big East, and West Coast all had two teams.
Virginia hosts No. 18 Clemson on Tuesday, then travels to No. 4 Duke Saturday.
