In the latest edition of our ACC power rankings, there’s finally some movement at the top, as UNC’s big win against Duke vaults them into the No. 1 spot, while Virginia continues to stay steady at No. 2
While BC turned the ball over numerous times, it used strong defense and great performances from Jordan Chatman and Nik Popovic to beat the Hurricanes.
In the latest edition of our ACC power rankings, the top five remains unchanged ahead of a Duke-Virginia weekend showdown that could decide who wins the regular season title.
The first edition of the ACC men’s basketball power rankings comes with six teams ranked in the AP Top 25, including two in the top four as No. 1 Duke and No. 4 Virginia gear up to battle for the conference title.
Nik Popovic had one of his best games of the year, while Jerome Robinson got his game back on track, but it was all for naught after one of the biggest end-game collapses in the Jim Christian Era.
BC shot 57 percent from the field and led by 14 points with under six minutes left, but proceeded to collapse toward the end of regulation, allowing the Hurricanes to pull off the unthinkable.
Thanks to Ky Bowman and Jerome Robinson, the Eagles closed regulation on a 9-0 run to upset the Hurricanes, marking the Eagles’ second victory over a ranked opponent this season.
