Duke Up To 11 In Polls

Amile Jefferson's improved play has a lot to do with Duke's dramatic rise in polls - Mark Konezny-USA TODAY Sports

Big jump despite losing to Syracuse

The new polls were released Monday morning and the ACC has made a move. Syracuse is now #1, Duke jumps all the way to #11 despite losing to Syracuse, Virginia is #20 AP and #21 USATODAY Coaches Poll, while Pitt falls to #25 and #22 respectively.

Not that it matters this season, but Louisville claimed #14 and #10 in the respective polls. No one else received a single vote.

If this were next year, the ACC would have 20% of the Top 25, but by next year, we'd expect UNC to be significantly better along with Florida State.
