Virginia ranked #1 in new AP college basketball poll

Inc. All rights reserved. This material may not be published broadcast rewritten or redistributed

The Virginia men's basketball team rose to the No. 1 spot in this week's Associated Press poll despite losing a close game to rival Virginia Tech Saturday. UVA lost 61-60 in overtime to Virginia Tech on Saturday, after 'Nova had lost to sub-.500 St. John's 79-75 on Wednesday. However, after the NCAA Tournament selection committee ranked Virginia as the projected No. 1 seed on Sunday afternoon, 30 AP voters gave the team a top vote - enough to put the Cavaliers at No. 1 in their poll.

Michigan State is up to No. 2, followed by previous No. 1 Villanova, Xavier and Cincinnati. Villanova 4. Xavier 5.

But Tony Bennett's Cavaliers rose above the turmoil at the top, climbing a slot to No. 1 for the first time since December 1982 - the senior season of 7-foot-4 great Ralph Sampson.

The Cavaliers will look to avoid another short-lived stay among the top of the poll as they prepare to face a risky Miami team on the road Tuesday - their only game of the week.
