CHAPEL HILL — Following its 90-57 loss against Florida State on Saturday, North Carolina dropped five spots from No. 3 to No. 8 in the weekly Associated Press top 25 poll, which was released on Monday afternoon.
The Tar Heels, who play at Virginia Tech on Thursday, are also No. 8 in the coaches’ poll.
Duke is the highest-rated ACC team in both polls, and the Blue Devils hold the same No. 4 ranking in each.
Virginia, which is 15th in the AP and 17th in the coaches’, is the only other ACC team to be ranked in either poll.
Florida State, by the way, received a single No. 25 vote in the AP poll. The Seminoles didn’t receive any votes in the coaches’ poll.
