SU Falls Out of the Top 10

 
SU Falls Out of the Top 10
Posted March 10th, 2014 @ 12:44pm

The final AP poll before Selection Sunday has been released and Syracuse is outside the top 10 for the first time all season. An ugly Senior Night loss to Georgia Tech dooms the Orange and drops them to 11th, but they certainly weren’t alone in suffering a shocking loss in the final week of the college basketball regular season.

Florida and Wichita State continue to ride incredible winning streaks and remain #1 and #2 for the third straight week. But losses by 6 of the next 8 teams in last week’s poll cause major shake-ups behind the clear cut top 2.

Villanova is the new 3rd-ranked squad, Arizona drops a spot to 4th, and Louisville jumps 6 places to round out the top 5. #6 Virginia and #7 Duke remain the top two ACC teams, and #15 North Carolina gives the conference a total of four teams in the top 25.

Syracuse’s next game will be Friday, in the quarterfinals of the ACC Tournament. As the second seed, SU’s first ever game in their new conference tourney will be against either #7 NC State, #10 Miami, or #15 Virginia Tech. Regardless of opponent, the Cuse will make their debut at 7 PM.
