Duke climbs to No. 3, Miami drops to No. 5 in AP Poll

Posted February 25, 2013

After suffering their first loss in ACC play last week, the Miami Hurricanes fell to No. 5 in the Associated Press Top 25 poll released Monday. Duke won two games in convincing fashion, at Virginia Tech and at home against Maryland, and moved up to No. 3.

Last week’s loss by Miami (22-4, 13-1 ACC) snapped a 14-game win streak. The Hurricanes will be at Duke (24-3, 11-3 ACC) on Saturday marking the fourth time the Blue Devils will play a top-5 game this season. They are 3-0 in such games with wins against Louisville, Ohio State and Kentucky. NCAA logo AP men's college basketball poll

Indiana (25-3) once again claimed the top spot in the poll with Gonzaga (27-2) sliding up to No. 2. Michigan (24-4) fills out the top 5 with the No. 4 ranking.

North Carolina (19-8, 9-5 ACC) received eight votes in the poll. The Tar Heels have won three in a row.

The rest of the Top-10 is Kansas, Georgetown, Florida, Michigan State and Louisville.

Two teams fell from the top 25 this week. Colorado State and Virginia Commonwealth sit No. 26 and No. 27 this week based on votes. Taking their spots are Saint Louis (No. 18) and Louisiana Tech (No. 25).

    Unless they have a major meltdown, there is no NIT, Carolina will be Dancing in March.

    If those brackets hold, Carolina and State are in trouble, and depending on how Miami continues playing, they may be in trouble as well. It would be ironic to have Carolina play UCLA, with three of its former players.

    Home court court neutral court. Who cares? Duke has played some tough teams early on. The ACC better get ready because Ville, Cuse, Pitt, and I think Dame are all ranked. Can you say the ACC will be the top ranked conference again. The ACC will probably have seven or eight teams ranked next year. There are also about 6 teams that can win it all this year.

    You joined in Dec. '06. You should have watched some basketball in the meantime, then you would have known that all NCAA Tournament games are played at neutral sites. Only the junior tourney gives home benefits.

    And Duke was a football tackle away from losing at BC also.
