New AP Poll: Led by Virginia, 3 ACC teams in the Top 5

This week’s AP Poll is out, and there’s a fair amount of change. Gonzaga is now the No. 1 team in the country; there are also three ACC programs in the top five, too. After the loss to North Carolina, Duke drops one spot. In total, five ACC teams land in the poll this week.

  • No. 2 Virginia
  • No. 3 Duke
  • No. 5 North Carolina
  • No. 18 Florida State
  • No. 20 Virginia Tech

After two losses last week, Louisville fell out of the poll; however, the Cards still received 90 votes. Louisville is the only ACC team outside the poll to receive votes (90). NC State picked up its 20th win of the season on Sunday, but the Pack has yet to receive a vote since the 24-point performance against Virginia Tech.
