The new polls came out Monday and in AP, Duke has bounced back up to #7. In the coaches poll, which we put more stock in, the Blue Devils are #5.

Sticking with the coaches poll, Louisville is #1, Virginia is #8, UNC is #16 and Florida State is #21.

In the AP, It’s Louisville #1 again, Virginia #9, UNC #17 and FSU #21 again.

Over at Kenpom.com, not surprisingly, it’s a different story. Here are the ACC teams:

  • Louisville #2
  • Duke: #3
  • Virginia: #10
  • FSU: #15
  • UNC: #22
  • NC State: #37
  • Syracuse: #52
  • Virginia Tech: #60
  • Notre Dame: #67
  • Pitt: #72
  • Miami: #82
  • Clemson: #89
  • Georgia Tech: #93
  • Wake Forest: #94
  • Boston College: #136

Clearly, not a vintage year so far. If the tournament field were picked today, the ACC would get six certain bids: Louisville Duke, Virginia, FSU, UNC and NC State. Virginia Tech might have an argument too but so far it’s six.
