Syracuse Basketball Moves To No. 3 In AP

New, comments

Now for some good news. The Syracuse Orange basketball team keeps winning and climbing up the charts. Already No. 3 in the Coaches Poll, they're not No. 3 in the AP Poll as well.

The Orange benefited from Duke's loss to Ohio State earlier in the week.

In the Coaches Poll, the Orange garner 713 votes, including one first-place vote. Right on their heels at No. 4 is Louisville while UConn checks in at No. 9. Other Big East schools include No. 11 Marquette, No. 14 Pitt and No. 21 Georgetown.

In the AP Poll, the Orange grab 1,491 votes and sits securely in the No. 3 spot. Louisville is No. 5, UConn is No. 9, Marquette is No. 11, Pitt is No. 15 and Georgetown is No. 18.

Mazel Tov to the nerds at Harvard. They're in the Top 25 for the first time ever.

Up next for the Orange are the Marshall Thundering Herd (5-1). They'll visit the Dome tomorrow night at 7pm.
