AP And USA Today Coaches Polls: Syracuse Falls From No. 1, West Virginia Not Ranked?

As expected, Syracuse dropped from its position atop the Associated Press and USA Today Coaches Poll rankings that were released today. Syracuse and Murray State had been the only remaining unbeaten teams in Division I basketball, but after being upset at Notre Dame on Saturday, the Orange dropped to No. 3 in the AP Poll and to No. 4 in the Coaches Poll. Kentucky was the new No. 1 in both polls, though Syracuse still got two No. 1 votes in the AP Poll.

Elsewhere in the Big East, Georgetown continued its slow climb up the polls by checking in at 9 in the AP Poll and 10 in the Coaches Poll. The Hoyas improved to 16-3 and 6-2 in the Big East with a come from behind win over Rutgers on Saturday. Marquette and Connecticut round out the unanimous Big East ranked teams checking in at No. 17/18 and 24/19 respectively. Surprisingly, Louisville remained ranked in the Coaches Poll, checking in at No. 25, tied with Wisconsin for the final spot.

Also surprising: West Virginia remained unranked despite beating Cincinnati to improve to 15-5 on the year and 5-2 in the Big East. The Mountaineers are unranked despite Joe Lunardi listing them as a three seed in his latest bracketology. While not ranked, Cincinnati also received votes in both polls. You can view the final tallies in both polls after the jump.
