Virginia, Duke Lead ACC Men’s Basketball


Virginia, Duke Lead ACC Men’s Basketball

Week 11 of the AP Top 25 men’s basketball poll places Virginia and Duke in the top 5. The Cavaliers bumped off giant killer NC State in handy fashion in Charlottesville while the Blue Devils bounced back with two decisive conference wins.

North Carolina returns to the top 15 following a solid win over Boston College and a scrappy battle with Notre Dame.

Clemson retains a spot in the top 20 after a questionable loss to NC State and then their turn around win over Miami.

Miami gets dinged this week and scrapes up enough votes to stay in the Top 25. The Canes have had a roller coaster ride over the past two weeks losing first to unranked Georgia Tech, then with a close win over then #24 Florida State before losing to then #19 Clemson.
