Week 4 College Basketball Rankings: Virginia Still in the Top 10

NCAA Basketball: Yale at Virginia Amber Searls-USA TODAY Sports

After three weeks of play, the Cavaliers remain in the AP Top Ten this week, bumping up one spot to No. 6. Not much has changed through both polls as most teams are still playing fairly easy schedules, and none have started their conference play.

In the AP poll, the Hoos were beneficiaries of Indiana dropping ten spots from 3 to 13 after their loss at IPFW. The Hoosiers could make that up and then some this week if they can knock off UNC at home. After being ranked 7th last week, UVa went 3-0 and were bumped to No. 6. Kentucky and Villanova stayed 1-2, while UNC, Kansas, and Duke all moved up a spot.

The Coaches' Poll looks quite similar to the AP with the top 8 the exact same. Indiana only fell to No. 10, while Oregon took the biggest drop from 8th to 20th this week. Virginia stayed the same as last week at No. 6, but they were not tied with Kansas this week, who jumped to No. 5.

The Hoos play host to Ohio State and West Virginia this week. If UVa can go 2-0 this week, a bump in the rankings could come next.
