The Virginia Cavaliers will close out 2018 with a No. 4 ranking as the Hoos stayed put in this week’s AP Poll. There was very little movement this week as most of the teams were inactive or took care of business.
No team in the top top ten moved at all, led by Duke at No. 1 for the second straight week. Kentucky jumped three spots to No. 13 after beating North Carolina (now No. 15).
Virginia’s first five ACC games will feature home games against No. 9 Florida State and No. 10 Virginia Tech before heading on the road to No. 1 Duke.
Arizona State was the lone team to fall out of the rankings as they followed up their emotional upset of No. 1 Kansas by losing to Princeton on their home court. Nebraska joined the rankings this week at No. 24, giving the Big Ten seven ranked teams. The ACC put six teams in the polls and the Pac-12 is without a ranked team.
