- The Washington Times - Monday, January 8, 2018

After defeating Virginia Tech and then-No. 12 North Carolina last week, Virginia rose in the rankings once again, climbing to No. 3 in the Associated Press Top 25 poll released on Monday. 

Virginia, ranked No. 8 in last week’s poll, was also No. 3 in the latest USA Today Coaches poll.

Villanova regained the AP’s top spot and West Virginia now sits at No. 2 after last week’s top two teams, Michigan State and Duke, both lost on the road to Ohio State and N.C. State, respectively. 

The 14-1 Cavaliers have the best defense in the nation, allowing just 52.5 points per game. Virginia hosts Syracuse on Wednesday and North Carolina State on Sunday.
