No. 6 Duke only ACC team in AP Top 25; Georgia Tech’s Josh Pastner thinks UNC is a top-10 team

This week’s AP Top 25 Poll is out. Once again, only one ACC men’s basketball team is in the poll: the No. 6 Duke Blue Devils.

Only two other ACC programs even received votes in the poll: Miami and North Carolina.

Currently, only two ACC teams land inside the top 25 of KenPom’s adjusted efficiency margins: Duke and North Carolina. Virginia Tech is the only other team inside the top 45.

At least one ACC coach strongly disagrees with North Carolina’s ranking: Josh Pastner of Georgia Tech.

The always loquacious Pastner ranted about this on this week’s ACC basketball teleconference: “I think they’re good enough to go to the Final Four.”

Of course, over the weekend, Georgia Tech lost to North Carolina for the second time this season. The Tar Heels have outscored the Yellow Jackets by a total of 40 points across two matchups.
