NCAA Basketball Rankings: Syracuse Remains No. 1 While Pac-12 Still Out Of Coaches Poll

The Top 25 Coaches basketball poll came out and to no surprise the Syracuse Orange are the No. 1 team in the country. The Pac-12 continues to be a bad conference with zero teams in the poll.

The Top 25 Coaches basketball poll has remained unchanged in the top 10 spots with the exception of the No. 10 team. The Florida Gators moved up two spots from No. 12 to No. 10, replacing the Marquette Golden Eagles. Marquette dropped to No. 13 after losing to Wisconsin-Milwaukee last week.

The Syracuse Orange are 13-0 and received 30 of 31 first-place votes. The No. 2 Ohio St. Buckeyes took the other first-place vote. Kentucky, Louisville and Duke round out the top five once again.

Once again, the Pac-12 is shut out of the polls again. The Stanford Cardinal received 11 votes to remain on the outside at No. 30. The UNLV Rebels, though, represent the Mountain West Conference at No. 20. The San Diego St. Aztecs were the first team out this week with 39 points
