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.
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).

Beware of the Gonzaga Bulldogs - They are a 'fun team' to watch and they play Thursday Feb 28th at 11 p.m. at BYU on ESPN2 if you'd like to watch.- Posted by wlcat609
Today's latest CBS Sports Bracketology has Duke a number one seed in the East playing a 'pansy' and then the winner of Minnesota/Missouri in round two; NCSU is in the Midwest and on the bubble as a nine seed and their first game is against Oklahoma and the second round would probably be Indiana; UNC is listed as a ten seed in the East and on the bubble with a first round game against UCLA; Miami has dropped to a third seed in the West and has a game with Davidson in round one and may then face Ohio State in round two. This is the way things stand today; things could change in the next three weeks. In the past CBS bracketology selections have been pretty accurate - you know what network telecasts the NCAA Tournament!
Dook is 2-1 against currently ranked teams and has lost to two unranked teams.- Posted by DooksucksV3
The best win they have is against #10 Louisville.
