Indiana reclaims No. 1, NC State drops from poll

Posted February 4, 2013

Indiana claimed the No. 1 spot in the latest AP Top 25 poll released Monday marking the fifth consecutive week there has been a new name atop the list.

Duke (19-2, 6-2 ACC), who has been No. 1 for five weeks this year and began the run of teams jockeying for the top spot, moved up one spot this week to No. 4.  The last time there were five straight new No. 1s was the last five polls of 2008-09 when it was Connecticut, Pittsburgh, Connecticut again, North Carolina and Louisville.

NC State (16-6, 5-4 ACC) fell out of the Top 25 for the first time this season following back-to-back losses at Virginia and at home to Miami by a combined four points. The Wolfpack were second among teams outside of the Top 25 receiving votes with 64. NC State has lost four conference games by a combined seven points.

Miami (13-3, 8-0 ACC) made a six-spot leap this week following their win at NC State. The Hurricanes find themselves No. 8 in the latest poll and are alone atop the ACC with a full two-game lead.

For the second consecutive week, North Carolina (13-6, 3-3 ACC) failed to receive any votes. 

After Indiana, Florida moved into the No. 2 spot followed by previous No. 1, Michigan. Kansas fell to No. 5 after losing to Oklahoma St. Gonzaga and Arizona each moved up a spot to Nos. 6 and 7, respectively.

Wichita State, San Diego State and Ole Miss all joined NC State as teams that fell from the Top 25. Moving in were Notre Dame (No. 25,) Pittsburgh (No. 23), Oklahoma St. (No. 22) and Georgetown (No. 20).

Oregon had the biggest fall in the poll this week dropping nine spots to No. 19 after suffering two road losses within the Pac 12. Cincinnati make a seven spot jump to No. 17 after a pair of Big East wins.

Ole Miss is the first team outside of the rankings followed by NC State and Colorado State.

    If Indiana played better defense, they would be unstoppable. I think in the end, another Zeller... View More

    Yes, but I sure wish he followed his older brother to Chapel Hill.

    Still time for State to come back some.

    State's lost 4 out of the last 6 games..so they should be out of the top 25....

    Good to see a Pack fan with logic. Not too many can say this on here.

    NCSU is much better than at least 5 teams currently ranked, especially Notre Dame. Miami is under rated and Duke a bit over rated. Much parity overall in the top 10 teams - none are especially dominant - just good.

    At this point, baring any major meltdowns, the ACC has 3 locks on the tourney in Duke, Miami, and NCSU. I think it's highly likely that at least 2 of UVA, MD, UNC get in but they all still have work to do.

    State needs Brown in order to be a top 20 team!

  • Hokies94 Feb 4, 7:02 p.m.

    All State has to do is win a couple of games to be ranked again. Losing 4 games lately can do this to any team. The guys that rank teams know what they are doing.

    They say a loss is a loss, but State's conference losses are by a combined 7 points, and most of those losses came in the last second(s) of the games. State may not be ranked now, but they will be well before March rolls around. They've played remarkably well without their most important player.

    State deserves to be out of the top 25. The loss to Virginia justified that .... its looking like the Pack may be lucky to finish 4th or 5th in the conference this year. So much for the high expectations. As for Indiana, the Hoosiers will likely lose again, the Big 10 is the toughest conferenece in college basketball this year IMHO.
