Duke No. 1 again, NC State makes jump in poll

Posted January 7, 2013

Unbeaten Duke claimed the top spot in The Associated Press college basketball poll for the fourth straight week after an 80-62 win over Wake Forest in their ACC opener Saturday.

Duke received 62 first-place votes in the latest poll, with Michigan getting the other three and holding down the No. 2 spot.

Louisville jumped unbeaten Arizona to claim the No. 3 spot. The rest of the top 10 are Indiana, Kansas, Syracuse, Minnesota, Gonzaga and Missouri. NCAA logo AP men's college basketball poll

North Carolina State jumped three spots in the latest poll to No. 20 after a 2-0 week that included wins over UNC-Greensboro and Boston College. Despite the close call in the Wolfpack's conference opener, a 12-2 record and a 2-0 week was enough to move them ahead of Cincinnati and Michigan State - each of whom suffered losses last week.

North Carolina is unranked in the latest poll, but despite losing their conference opener to Virginia, received four votes in the AP poll.

In addition to UNC, Maryland is also receiving votes with 29.

The ACC has just two teams in the top 25 of the latest poll while the Big Ten leads the way with six. The Big East holds five spots followed by the Mountain West with three. Tied with the ACC in Top-25 placeholders are the Missouri Valley Conference, the SEC and the Big 12. Arizona is the lone member ranked out of the PAC 12.

Wyoming is the lone Division I team in the nation without a loss to still be unranked.

    that is exactly what i was saying..2 wins this week would make a 10 game winning streak for NCSU, with the last loss to(next in line #1)michigan by 7...it would also put NCSU at 14-2,3-0...that should get them close to top 10, if not in...not that it matters, b/c #6 was too high, and where they have been more recently has been too low...the osu debacle was in the 4th game of the season, and osu just now dropped out of the top 25 after losing to top 25 gonzaga and ksu by a combined 8 pts...its one blemish, early on, to a team that will be in the tourney

    And the "shoulda lost" part is very debatable -- BC was lucky to even keep it close... the right team won.

    Keep on with those sour grapes -- make JGunn some "whine" with it!

    State got run off the court against Michigan? Maybe you should check that box score again and define what you meant by "run off the court". It was a very respectable loss to a top-3 team on their own court.

    Last I checked with my people, MD is still set to go in the 2014-15 season. 2 years (including this one) in the ACC. Regardless, I'm looking for them to play really well during conf games. Should be really interesting.
    GO TERPS!!!

    Teams have dropped in polls before even if they won against a bad team, but you're absolutely right: State got the "W", and a road win against a conference foe is tough to get, and State deserves credit for winning that game. That shows State's improvement over previous years, where they may have lost that game instead of gritting out a win.

    You may have been right the first time, caearly. I think Maryland is going to try and bolt after this season. At any rate, I do think Maryland will make some noise before they let the ACC door hit them in the rear:)

    State did play Michigan but got run off the court.!!!...these polls mean nothing.!!!

    You must have seen a different game than me. I would not say they were run off the court, just got beat by 6 or 7 points I do believe. Oh and Michigan's record is what now? Yeah that's right. 13-0.
