NCAA Basketball Rankings: Ohio State New No. 1, Duke Falls To No. 4 In AP Top 25 Poll; Boston College Still Unranked

Ohio State (18-0) overtook Duke for the top ranking in this week's AP Top 25 Poll. The Blue Devils (16-1), who lost to ACC rival Florida State last Wednesday, fell to No. 4 while Kansas (17-0) and Syracuse (18-0) ranked second and third.

Pittsburgh (17-1), which has a big game against Syracuse on Monday night, was ranked fifth. San Diego State (19-0), Villanova (16-1), Connecticut (14-2), Brigham Young (17-1) and Texas (14-3) round out the top ten.

Boston College, which defeated N.C. State but lost to Miami (FL), continues to be unranked. The Eagles had as many as 17 votes in the AP Top 25 Poll earlier this year, but have not received any votes since then after several losses.

Minnesota and Michigan State jumped back into the picture this week while Kansas State, Temple, Georgia and UCF dropped out of the poll. St. Mary's of California also jumped into the poll with a 16-2 record.
