The Virginia Cavaliers moved up two spots to #10 in the November 30, 2015 release of the USA Today Coaches Poll.
The poll follows a quiet week for Virginia, who went 1-0 since last Monday's poll with an 80-54 win over Lehigh. The Hoos jumped Arizona and Gonzaga, who ranked 10th and 11, respectively, last week; each lost their first game of the season.
Undefeated Kentucky remained on top once again, and received 29 of 32 first-place votes. Maryland (who received the other 3 votes) follows at #2, and Michigan State, Iowa State, and Duke round out the top 5.
North Carolina (#9), Syracuse (#19), Miami (#21), and Louisville (#22) are the other four ACC teams to make the top 25, while Notre Dame received votes as well. Past opponent George Washington sits just outside the rankings, as does future opponent California, while Villanova moved up to #7.
The AP Poll followed a similar pattern, as Virginia jumped the same two teams to move up to #10. The top three were identical to those of the Coaches Poll, but Kansas came in at #4 and Iowa State at #5.
