The Syracuse Orange inched their way back up the polls on Monday thanks to some wins of their own and losses by others.

In the AP Poll, Syracuse is up to No. 6. Indiana got the hotly-contested No. 1 spot, followed closely by Duke and Miami while Michigan and Gonzaga round out the top five.

In the Coaches Poll, Syracuse is one spot lower at No. 7. Duke got the No. 1 spot here, followed by Indiana, Gonzaga, Miami, Michigan and Florida.

Notable ranked teams are No. 12/12 Louisville, No. 15/15 Georgetown, No. 16/17 Pittsburgh, No. 18/20 Marquette, No. 21/21 Notre Dame and UNR/No. 22 San Diego St.

In the ESPN Power Rankings, the Orange move up three spots to No. 6. They've got Indiana followed by Miami, Duke, Michigan and Florida in the top five. Brett Edgerton and Andy Katz are big fans (4th) while Joe Lunardi and Miles Simon are unimpressed (9th) and Jay Bilas is downright displeased (10th).

In the other polls...

RPI Rankings: No. 6

Sagarin Ratings: No. 6

Colley Matrix: No. 9

Massey Ratings: No. 7

The AP Voter You Arbitrarily Hate This Week is a tie between Cormac Gordon and Jin Wilner, both of whom have Syracuse at No. 11 overall. Cormac at least has the good sense to put Louisville behind us while Wilner has them at NUMBER 4!

The AP Voter You Arbitrarily Love This Week is Roger Clarkson of the Athens Banner-Herald who has SU all the way at No. 2. The Philadelphia Inquirer's Joe Juliano has SU at No. 3, so he deserves a little love as well.
