Last week we took another week off because, honestly, there wasn’t a lot of movement in the polls. This week, however, there were some serious shakeups particularly with Duke losing. Kentucky almost made things even more interesting, but Texas A&M decided to cough up a perfect opportunity for a signature win for the program, and we’re stuck looking at a possible unbeaten regular season for the Wildcats.
Kentucky and Duke are getting all of the headlines, but Virginia is just quietly plugging along. It’ll be interesting to see how the season shakes out, particularly in a pretty stacked ACC – out of which five teams got votes in this week’s Top 10, all of which are teams Syracuse will be facing down the stretch.
