AP poll: Indiana, Duke 1-2 on top of same Top 25

Posted December 10, 2012

Indiana is No. 1 for a sixth straight week in The Associated Press college basketball poll with Duke right behind for the second week in a row.

The only changes in Monday's poll is the order, not who's ranked.

NC State, with a 2-0 week that included a win against Connecticut, remains at No. 25 while UNC slipped a spot to No. 21 despite winning their only contest. NCAA logo AP men's college basketball poll

The Hoosiers (9-0) received 44 first-place votes from the 64-member national media panel. Duke (9-0) again drew the remaining 20 No. 1 votes.

Michigan and Syracuse stayed put at Nos. 3 and 4, respectively. Florida and Louisville switched places at fifth and sixth. They were followed by Ohio State, Arizona, Kansas and Illinois. The Illini (10-0) beat fellow unbeaten Gonzaga on Saturday, moving into the top 10 for the first time since the next-to-last poll of 2005-06. Gonzaga had the week's biggest fall and dropped to 14th.

UNC's one-spot drop is due to a one-spot leap by UNLV as the teams switched spots in the rankings. UNLV (7-1) had two road wins on the week winning at Portland and escaping California with a one-point victory.

Last week, AP Top 25 teams posted a combined 42-1 record with the only loss being a match-up of two ranked teams.

The Big Ten has the most ranked teams with six. The Big East has five and the Atlantic Coast Conference and Mountain West three each.

    .......................................Oh! Were you done? I could not tell if your run on sentence was over or not because your grammarsuckz. You are going to be held back to the third grade if you do not start making some improvement soon, slowpoke.

    I honestly thought Duke had the chance to take the number one spot after beating the Nos. 2, 3 and 4 ranked teams. Nevertheless, they are playing great now but league play will certainly prove to be the test.

    Duke is rolling while unc-cheat is reeling. oh, these are wonderful times along tobacco road. Duke being recognized for their academic AND athletic endeavors while unc is being recognized by the SBI, NCAA, an independent (right!) investigative team and unable to escape from the far reaching tentacles of Pack Pride! Roy will be packing it in shortly as the banners come tumbling down

    Contrary to some writers on here. I believe that polls matter when a top team goes down after few losses. It makes coaches and players take notice. Going from #6 to 25th for State has definitely made the coaches and players take a serious look at what they are doing in practice and in games. Look at K'Tucky. You can bet that Calapari and his coaches are working the heck out of them now.

    I've watched Michigan play a couple of times....winning both, but they may be a little overrated at this time.....it's been awhile since they have had any hardwood success....

    I'd rather be unranked and undefeated than ranked with 2 losses. However, if you are ranked now it generally means you have been doing something right in the beginning of the season. I really don't think that the Wolfpack or the Tar Heels have proven their rank and are ranked solely due to their talent.

  • wlcat609 Dec 11, 9:44 a.m.

    Being ranked nuber 1 or 2 or even 25 means NOTHING at this time of year....Only in mid-March will the rankings be significant!

    Dukes schedule is one of the hardest starts to a season in recent memory for me, an excellent start, but expectations must be tempered as it is still very early, any number of things can derail a nc run, unc knows all to well from last year, one wrist and 5nba players go home smh

  • mxteam44 Dec 11, 8:37 a.m.

    Not a Duke fan, but I have to say that they deserve #1 CURRENTLY, with the schedule they have... View More

    Lord knows I'm not a Duke fan either, but I tend to agree with you on this one.
