Syracuse Still On Top Of "USA Today" Poll

Syracuse is still the number-one team in college basketball. The undefeated Orange received all 32 first-place votes to retain the top spot in this week's "USA Today" poll after a pair of scares last week. Syracuse is now 25-and-0 on the season. Florida leapfrogged Wichita State for second place, with the 27-and-0 Shockers now third. Arizona fell from third to fourth after a double-overtime loss to Arizona State on Friday. Louisville is fifth. Duke, San Diego State, Kansas, Cincinnati and Saint Louis round out the top-10. Pittsburgh and Oklahoma dropped out of the this week's top-25.
