. . 0-1. . 3. ACC. 8-3. . . 825

The first riser near the top this week is the Blue Devils after they took down No. 10 Baylor at Madison Square Garden last week, 78-70. It has taken some time for Duke to figure things out, but if this is an indication that they have, watch out.

Last week: No. 4

Games this week: Dec. 30 vs. Queens

ACC. . . . 8-3. 1-0. 441. . 2.

Like their in-state rivals did last week, the Tar Heels picked up a big win for the ACC when they beat previously undefeated and No. 7 Oklahoma in Charlotte by 12 points. RJ Davis scored 23 points as North Carolina collected a badly-needed non-conference win.

Last week: No. 5

Games this week: Dec. 29 vs. Charleston Southern

. . 10-1. 1-0. 432. ACC. 1. . .

The Tigers remain in the top spot for a third straight week after rolling over Queens at home by 30 points after suffering their first loss of the season against Memphis. They have one more non-conference game before they return to ACC play after the New Year.

Last week: No. 1

Games this week: Dec. 29 vs. Radford
