NCAA Basketball Rankings: Kentucky, Syracuse Lead Polls As Usual

Kentucky and Syracuse lead the new NCAA Polls, and Minnesota is nowhere to be found on them, unsurprisingly.

The new NCAA Coaches Poll has been released and to the surprise of absolutely nobody, the Minnesota Golden Gophers are not in the Top 25. In fact, if they expanded the list to the Top 50, the Gophers wouldn't be there either. Minnesota are in a position where they might not even make the NCAA Tournament in general after playing absolutely terrible in conference play.

Kentucky remained tops in the coaches poll once again, and Syracuse stayed right behind them as both teams have continued to win in dominating fashion over just about everybody they've faced. Duke were moved up a spot to third place and after their huge comeback victory over Mizzou, Kansas moved up to fourth. Big Ten leading Michigan State moved up as well to close out the top five.

Creighton are the only team to move up into the top 25 that weren't there last week, starting out at 24th with Temple right below them.
