Virginia ranked #1 in new AP college basketball poll

Virginia ranked #1 in new AP college basketball poll Virginia ranked #1 in new AP college basketball poll

Despite losing 61-60 at home in overtime Saturday night against Virginia Tech, Virginia still reached No. 1 in this week's AP men's basketball top 25 poll for the first time since December 1982. Virginia (23-2, 12-1) had suffered an overtime home loss Saturday to Virginia Tech, part of an upset-filled week that saw the top three teams lose.

Virginia also topped the preliminary NCAA Tournament rankings released last weekend, due to four wins against top-10 RPI teams.

Michigan State rose to No. 2 after beating previously-third-ranked Purdue 68-65 on Saturday. Villanova retained nine No. 1 votes despite sliding to No. 3 in the poll, while No. 4 Xavier snagged five votes for the top spot.

The Cavaliers are No. 1 in the AP Poll for the first time since 1982, when they were led by Ralph Sampson.

The Cavaliers will look to avoid another short-lived stay among the top of the poll as they prepare to face a unsafe Miami team on the road Tuesday - their only game of the week.

U.Va. (23-2, 12-1 ACC) jumped up Monday from No. 2 after winning 59-55 last Wednesday night at Florida State 59-55, and losing to Tech. Texas A&M and Arizona State moved into the top 25, with Kentucky and Miami dropping out.

Xavier and Cincinnati clocked in at No. 4 and No. 5, and Purdue, thanks to losing two games on last-second shots in one week, fell from third to sixth.
