SU’s blowout loss at Virginia Saturday drops them from 4th to 7th in the latest AP poll, ending a 13-week run in the top 5. Syracuse also loses their standing as the highest ranked ACC team, with both Duke and Virginia moving ahead of them. Duke is the new #4 and Virginia is up to #5. #14 North Carolina gives the conference a fourth team in the top 25.

The top 3 remains the same as last week, with Florida on top, followed by Wichita State and Arizona. All 3 again receive multiple first place votes.

This is the final week of the regular season, and the Orange finish with a home game tomorrow at 7 against Georgia Tech and a road game at Florida State Sunday afternoon.

 

Tomorrow is Senior Night, with C.J. Fair and Baye Keita playing their final game in front of the Carrier Dome faithful. Depending on draft decisions to be made after the season, it could also be the final home game for Tyler Ennis, Jerami Grant, and Rakeem Christmas.
