NCAA Basketball Rankings: Kentucky No. 2 In Both Polls

While neither the Georgia Bulldogs nor the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets are anywhere close to being ranked, the ACC and the SEC are well represented at the top of both the AP and the coaches polls.

The Kentucky Wildcats are No. 2 in both polls behind undefeated Syracuse. North Carolina is close behind at No. 3. Duke checks in at No. 6 in the coaches and No. 8 in the AP poll. Virginia is off to a 14-1 start and jumps up five spots to No. 16 in this week's AP poll.

Florida and Mississippi State each drop five spots this week after opening conference play with losses.
