No change at the top as Virginia comes in at No. 2 again this week in the AP Poll, behind the No. 1 Gonzaga Bulldogs. The Hoos picked up 23 first place votes this week, with Gonzaga taking the other 41. North Carolina held steady at No. 3, with Kentucky coming at No. 4.
Duke dropped to No. 5 this week after getting swept in the regular season by UNC. Michigan State, Texas Tech, Tennessee, LSU, and Michigan round out the top-10.
The ACC once again has five teams represented, including three in the top-5. Joining Virginia, UNC, and Duke are No. 12 Florida State and No. 16 Virginia Tech, and Louisville and Clemson also received votes this week.
Next up, Virginia will face the winner of NC State and Clemson in the quarterfinals of the ACC tournament on Thursday. The Hoos are the No. 1 seed in the ACC tournament, and on the same side of the bracket as No. 4-seeded Florida State and No. 5-seeded Virginia Tech.
