College Basketball Rankings: Virginia drops to No. 4 in Coaches Poll after losing to Duke; Gonzaga jumps to No. 3
Tennessee remained No. 1 and the Blue Devils stayed at No. 2
Duke's dismantling of Virginia on the road this weekend loosened Tennessee's grip on the No. 1 spot in Monday's USA Today Coaches Poll, but not enough to pry it loose. The Volunteers are again No. 1 in the poll ahead of Duke, receiving 30 of a possible 32 first-place votes. Duke received the other two, only a week after UT collected all 32.
Gonzaga, Virginia and Kentucky round out the reshuffled top-5; UVA's loss dropped it one spot, and as a result, Gonzaga bounced from No. 4 to No. 3.
New to the top 10 of this week's rankings is Houston, which entered last week at No. 12. The Cougars (23-1) stand at No. 9 in this week's rankings, sandwiched in between North Carolina (9) and Marquette (10). They're the only club out of the AAC ranked this week after Cincinnati dropped out.
