Indiana stays No. 1; Duke, Miami fall in at 2-3 in latest AP poll

Posted February 11, 2013

Despite losing this week, Indiana maintained their No. 1 ranking in the Associated Press Top 25 poll by a narrow margin over Duke.

The Hoosiers (21-3) claimed 26 first place votes and edged Duke (21-2) by a mere 44 points. Indiana lost at Illinois before rebounding to beat Ohio State. The Blue Devils won both of their games last week, although they were challenged Sunday at Boston College. NCAA logo AP men's college basketball poll

Miami (19-3) earned 17 first-place votes and climbed five spots to No. 3. The Hurricanes are a perfect 10-0 in ACC play this season and have defeated both Duke and UNC by at least 25 points.

Rounding out the top 5 is Michigan (31-3), who fell one spot following a loss at Wisconsin over the weekend, and Gonzaga (23-2), who jumped up a spot and garnered two first-place votes.

Florida (19-3) dropped five spots from No. 2 to No. 7 after suffering a, 11-point loss at Arkansas. Syracuse won a pair of games easily on the week and climbed three spots to No. 6.

Michigan State (20-4), Arizona (20-3) and Kansas State (19-4) complete the rest of the top 10.

Kansas (19-4) suffered the biggest fall in the poll as they lost twice and dropped nine spots from No. 5 to No. 14. Pittsburgh (20-5) received the biggest hike as they climbed seven spots to No. 16.

Newcomers to this week’s poll are Wisconsin (17-7), Memphis (20-3), Colorado State (19-4) and Kentucky (17-6). They replace Creighton, Cincinnati, Minnesota and Missouri.

North Carolina State received 24 votes and Virginia received four.

In the USA Today poll released Monday, Duke checked in at No. 1 with Indiana No. 2. Gonzaga was No. 3 and Miami No. 4.

    cj - please tell us if your team won. I can't imagine how long that game must have lasted.

    Tim - totally agree with the one and dones. I remember JJ Hickson, and while he was very talented, there were some hard feelings on the team due to him getting so much playing time; tough decision for Lowe.

    I agree that players back in the day may have been better fundamentally because they stayed all four years, but today's players seem to have more experience in leagues like AAU. I wish they would return to allowing players to leave from high school. It's so hard for coaches these days to field good teams when so many players leave after a year. Kobe and LeBron have done well without college.

    I can't argue with you, Fish, unfortunately. It will be a closer game in the Dome, though.

  • foghat001 Feb 12, 2013

    Btw the ACC Network is also carrying the game, according to their site.

    Lets see Miami beat blew Duke out, and they are 10-0 in the ACC. They are playing the best basketball in the country, and Duke is still ranked ahead of them in the polls. I know, I know Ryan Kelly!

    Did your team win? Man, I would have thought they would have instituted a sudden death rule after a game like that. After 10 overtimes, jump it up at half court, and the first team that scores wins. My high school team during my senior year only consisted of 7 players, so I don't think we would have had anyone left in the game after 3 or 4 OT's.

    Speaking to your other points, I think the teams from back in the day commonly had more experienced players because most players stayed for all 4 years. None of this one-and-done stuff like you see so many talented kids doing nowadays. I have always wanted State to avoid players that would not play for at least 3 years. I did not like it when they signed Hickson even though he was a star player for his 1 season. I think players leaving early just doesn't allow the team chemistry to develop which is why I would rather not have them.

    The 13-overtime game was my high school's claim to fame in 1964. We played 13 overtimes, which is still the record. I don't think it'll ever be broken.

    As for the comparison of Miami to the 1977 UNC-Charlotte team, anyone who remembers the 49ers from that season would agree. UNCC was a relative unknown at the beginning of the season, but had a big, strong and veteran team led by Cedric (Cornbread) Maxwell, who went on to star with the Celtics. The 49ers made the NCAA tournament field (which wasn't easy back then) and blew through the NCAAT, eventually beating #1 Michigan 75-68 to win their regional. They lost on a buzzer beater to Marquette in the national semi-finals (I don't believe they called it the Final Four then). Maxwell and that team were overlooked by practically everybody, much like Miami is right now.

    The present teams may be bigger than they were back in the 1970s, but those teams had more seniors and I think they also had more skills and fundamentals than teams do now. The UCLA teams from the mid-60s through the mid-70s would blow away most of your Top 20 today.

    The Hurricanes I think are worthy of their ranking but it sure is weird to think of them ranked ahead of 2 Triangle schools! It can only improve the ACC's image in the long run I suppose.

  • lanecc Feb 11, 2013

    Miami should be #1. Don't really know where we belong. But Indiana does not deserve to be #1 after losing.

    What game are you referring to? That must have been one for the record books!
