NCAA Basketball

2010-11 AP Men's Basketball Rankings: Duke Back on Top

0

The Duke Blue Devils, who survived a desperation half-court heave in last year's NCAA finals against Butler, will start the 2010-11 men's basketball season ranked No.1 by the Associated Press. Meanwhile, runner-up Butler checks in at No. 17. In terms of conference strength, the Blue Devils and North Carolina are the only ACC teams inside the Top 10. The Big East has three (Pitt, Villanova and Syracuse), the Big 10 has two (Michigan State and Ohio State), the Big 12 has two (Kansas State and Kansas) and the SEC has one (Florida). Take a look:
