UVA men’s basketball jumps to #10 in the AP Poll

NCAA Basketball: Virginia at Florida State Melina Myers-USA TODAY Sports

After a stretch of weeks outside the top ten, the Virginia Cavaliers men’s basketball team has jumped up to #10 in this week’s AP Poll with the recent three game winning streak propelling them three spots higher than last week. #17 Miami and #19 Clemson are the only other ACC squads ranked as the Tigers’ big win over Duke knocked the Blue Devils out of the poll.

Meanwhile, of Virginia’s other opponents this season, Houston remains at #1 while Baylor sticks at its #21 position. The NC State Wolfpack (111) are first amongst the teams receiving votes while Duke (24) and North Carolina (1) are the other two ACC schools included. Not fantastic, to say the least.

Thus, were this to be the final poll of the season, UVA would only have one more game against a ranked team, with #19 Clemson coming to town on Tuesday, February 28th for what will be a matchup between two of the ACC’s top squads.
