NCAA Basketball Polls Update: Duke and Michigan Remain Top 2

The Duke Blue Devils and Michigan Wolverines remain at the top of the rankings for another week.

After the top two is Louisville who switched spots with Arizona at three, even with both teams going unbeaten for the week. Arizona even beat two Pac-12 teams in Utah and Colorado. Indiana, Kansas, and Syracuse are 5-7 in the poll, while Minnesota moved up one spot to eight thanks to Ohio State losing. Gonzaga and Missouri also were benefactors of the Buckeyes loss in moving up a spot.

Florida is 11, while Illinois comes in at 12 despite defeating Ohio State. A loss to unranked Purdue before the Buckeye game cost the Illini a spot in the top 10. Creighton, Butler and Ohio State round out the top 15. San Diego State, Notre Dame, Kansas State, Georgetown, and North Carolina State finish up the top 20. The Wildcats jumped seven spots from 25 to 18.

Cincinnati and Michigan State both fell in the rankings, as the Bearcats dropped seven spots and the Spartans fell four. Wichita State and UNLV, are both new to the poll this week. The Shockers come in at 23, while the Runnin Rebels are 24. Finishing up the top 25 is New Mexico at 25. The Lobos fell five spots. Oklahoma State and Pittsburgh both fell out of the top 25.
