Oklahoma And UNC Split No. 1 In New Polls, Duke Out Of Top 25 For 1st Time In 8 Years

College basketball polls reveal the No. 1 team.

USA Today

While there was no change from last week at the top two spots of the AP and Coaches' polls, where Oklahoma and North Carolina sit on top, respectively, this college basketball season continues to be pretty ridiculous. The rest of the polls saw a ton of changes, but one of the most notable things is the team that isn't included in either: Duke. The Blue Devils are 15-6, and 4-4 in ACC play after beating N.C. State and losing to Miami last week, and for the first time in eight years, are out of the AP Top 25.

Duke finished with 27 votes, finishing behind Pitt in the "other receiving votes" category of the Coaches' poll. If you are a Tar Heel, you are probably pretty happy with how things are going right now.
