After two weeks on the outside, the Virginia Cavaliers are back into the AP Top-25 this week despite having played only beating NC Central. With a number of teams at the back half of the poll losing recently, UVA’s recent victories have the team back on the right track after the stumble in Fort Myers, and voters have rewarded the ‘Hoos for that.

#9 North Carolina, #13 Clemson, #21 Duke, and #24 Miami join the Wahoos as ACC teams in the top-25. Notably, the Hurricanes have dropped from #15 after suffering their second blowout loss of the season, this time to Colorado 90-63. Wisconsin — after losing by 25 to new #1 Arizona this past week — is the only other UVA opponent in the top-25 coming in directly below them at #23. But Texas A&M and Memphis both received votes after the Tigers upset the Aggies on Sunday.

Do you agree with the poll? Should the ‘Hoos be higher, lower, or is this just right?
