The Virginia men’s basketball team moved up one spot this week in the AP poll, climbing to No. 22. Virginia picked up a road win over Notre Dame to open ACC-play, but had to postpone Saturday’s matchup against Virginia Tech due to a positive coronavirus test for a UVA staff member.
Gonzaga stayed No. 1 for the seventh straight week, although No. 2 Baylor received one first-place vote. Villanova moved up one spot to No. 3, with Texas and Iowa jumping into the top-5. Kansas tumbled three spots to No. 6 after its loss to Texas, and Creighton, Wisconsin, Tennessee, and Michigan fill spots No. 7-10, respectively.
Ohio State and Northwestern fell out of the rankings this week, making a small dent into the Big Ten’s domination of the poll. The B10 has seven teams ranked in the latest poll, including a Michigan State team that is 1-3 in conference play.
Clemson entered the rankings at No. 19, tying with Virginia Tech as the highest-ranked ACC teams. Duke came in just ahead of the Hoos at No. 20.
Next up, Virginia hosts Wake Forest on Wednesday night at 9pm. The game will be televised on the ACC Network.
