UVA basketball back to #1 in USA Today Coaches Poll
The ‘Hoos (13-0) had been #1 two weeks ago, then fell a spot to #2 last week, despite not playing a game, as Duke (12-1), also coming off a week with no games, ascended to #1.
Well, apparently, the 65-52 win over then-#9 Florida State on Saturday, in a game Virginia led by 29 with two minutes left, before the ‘Noles pressed the walk-ons to make the score look better, was impressive enough.
Duke is back at #2, followed by Tennessee (12-1), Michigan (!5-0) and Michigan State (13-2).
Virginia Tech (13-1) is a season-best #7 this week.
North Carolina (11-3) is 12th, with FSU (12-2) 13th, and NC State (13-1) 16th.
