Syracuse Basketball Falls To No 12 In AP, Coaches Polls

USA TODAY Sports

For the first time this season, and for the first time since the end of the 2010-11 season, Syracuse has dropped out of the top 10 of the latest college basketball polls.

Stand up and applaud. No really, the Syracuse basketball team deserves a huge ovation for what could be considered one of the greatest accomplishments in program history.

For the first time this season, and almost two full years, the Orange (22-5, 10-4 Big East Conference) dropped out of the top 10 in both college basketball polls Tuesday, as both slotted SU 12th overall.

The run was a remarkable accomplishment and is something that hopefully can start again after a victory over Marquette on Monday and a fourth straight win over Louisville on Saturday.

The AP Poll, it goes Indiana, Gonzaga, Duke, Michigan and Miami. Believe it or not, this was the highest ranking for the Bulldogs in program history. Georgetown moved up to No. 7 after its victory on Saturday, while Louisville is slotted No. 10, Notre Dame is No. 21, Marquette is No. 22 and Pittsburgh is No. 23.

The Coaches Poll, the top four are the same with Kansas sliding in at No. 5. Florida is No. 6 and Miami is No. 7. Georgetown is eighth, Louisville is ninth, Notre Dame is 20th and Marquette is 22nd. Pittsburgh did not crack the top 25.

In the ESPN Power Rankings, the Orange fell three spots from last week dropping to No. 11 overall.
