THIRD ACC HOOPS SQUAD TOPS POLL

Just so Coach Krzyhmlp2ski doesn’t get mad at us like he did the poor little ol’ Raleigh News & Observer earlier this year, we figured we better point out that Duke has been voted the No. 1 team in the nation.

You may recall Coach K giving the Research Triangle-area paper an earful after they failed to give Duke’s rightful ascension to the No. 2 spot the appropriate amount of ink and/or cyberspace. Not happenin’ to T.A.H., baby!

In another shakeup at the top, Duke (18-1) rose to No. 1 in this week's ESPN/USA Today poll. The Blue Devils received 30 of 31 first-place votes.

The top ranking changed hands for the third consecutive week as Coach K’s boys supplanted Wake at No. 1. The Blue Devils (18-1) received 30 of 31 first-place votes, with the other vote (News & Observer) going to No. 2 Connecticut (18-1). The Demon Deacons, also 18-1, fell to fourth after losing for the first time, 78-71 to Virginia Tech in their only game last week.

Fasten your seatbelt as Duke visits Demon Deacons on Wednesday night (ESPN, 7 ET).
