Virginia Tops Final AP Poll

UNDATED (AP) — Virginia remains the unanimous No. 1 team in the final Associated Press men’s basketball poll, an honor that will become hollow if the Cavaliers don’t win the real national championship.

The Cavs earned all 65 first-place votes to remain on top for the fifth straight week. Virginia is 31-2 and winners of both the ACC regular season and tournament titles.

Villanova is second, followed by Xavier, Kansas and Michigan St. The Jayhawks moved up five spots after winning the Big 12 Tournament.

Cincinnati, Michigan, Gonzaga, Duke and North Carolina round out the top 10.

Meanwhile, UConn finishes No. 1 in The Associated Press women’s basketball poll for the fifth straight year.

The Huskies enter the NCAA Tournament as the lone unbeaten team and went wire-to-wire as the unanimous top team. They received all 32 votes from the national media panel Monday.

Baylor, Louisville, Mississippi State and Notre Dame followed UConn in the poll. Oregon, South Carolina, Texas, UCLA and Ohio State round out the first 10 teams.
