The Duke Blue Devils returned to the top spot in the annual Harris Poll inquiring fans favorite collegiate men’s and women’s basketball teams. (Riot in Krzydakshvxbnw4skiville!)

The men’s team finished first, a spot they’ve garnered five of the last six years and in six of the 11 times the poll has been conducted since 1993, while the Duke women’s team finished tied for fourth in the poll, as well.

The poll was conducted by Harris Interactive between March 11-18, 2008, among a nationwide sampling of 2,513 adults from the United States, 611 of which followed college basketball. (Um…if they run that poll right after Duke loses to the burning couch boys from West “By God” Virginia, how do the numbers look? Oh well, like they say – timing is everything.)

North Carolina was second in the poll after finishing first last season for the first time (Sorry Florida, use the NCAA Division 1 Men’s Basketball National Championship trophy for consolation). Indiana moved from No. 8 to No. 3 between 2007 and ’08 while UCLA and Iowa round out the top five. Georgetown, Kansas and Tennessee all tied for sixth while Kentucky and Wisconsin finished tied for ninth.
