The Shockers (34-0) got the other 15 No. 1 votes. They won the Missouri Valley Conference tournament Sunday, the first team to enter the NCAA tournament without a loss since UNLV in 1991.

Duke fell three spots to No. 7 after a week in which the lost to Wake Forest before defeating North Carolina. The Tar Heels dropped one spot this week to No. 15.

For the second consecutive week, North Carolina Central received one vote. Winners of 17 in a row, they are the No. 1 seed in the MEAC Tournament that gets started this week

Villanova moved from sixth to third, while Arizona dropped one spot to fourth. Louisville jumped from 11th to fifth and Virginia is slotted sixth. San Diego State and Michigan tied for eighth and Kansas was 10th.

Syracuse, who had lost four of five before a win over Florida State Sunday dropped four more spots to No. 11.

Kentucky, which has lost three of four, dropped out from 25th becoming the fourth preseason No. 1 to fall out of the poll in the same season. Iowa also fell out. The Wildcats and Hawkeyes were replaced by Ohio State and VCU.

    Would be great to see the Shockers cutting down the nets in April.

    Agree, Toddler, UVA did blow a chance at a #1 seed; not sure they would have gotten it, but now they're down to a 3 last I heard. The ACCT may tweak NCAAT seedings.

    UVA lost out big time. They had a chance to move to #4 and possible #1 seed.

    WOW, Duke dropped after losing the previous week. Now that's shocking, it didn't happen the 2 previous times.
