College basketball rankings: Undefeated Virginia ahead of Duke at the top of the Coaches Poll

For the first time in a good while, the top 10 of the USA Today Coaches Poll remains largely intact thanks to chalky results that kept all but one of last week's top 10 teams from stumbling into losses.

That leaves Virginia, Duke, Tennessee and Michigan in their same respective spots atop the latest poll released on Monday. Gonzaga and Michigan State flip-flopped positions, with the Bulldogs jumping one spot to five and the Spartans falling to six. Virginia Tech stays steady at 7 again this week, and Kansas, Texas Tech and Nevada round out the top 10.

The top-ranked Cavaliers are holding strong at No. 1 for a second consecutive week after staying unbeaten and improving to 15-0 on the season, with wins over Boston College and Clemson on the road this week. They garnered 13 first-place votes this week, two more than last week. Duke received six first-place votes and Tennessee received seven. Michigan, the only team in the country with 17 wins going into Sunday, received six.
