The Athletic 2018-19 college basketball poll: It turns out we didn’t believe in Zion

Duke has an edge over the Cavaliers with a sweep of the regular-season series, but the Blue Devils still face two showdowns with rival North Carolina, the first on Wednesday. Kentucky's week would've looked a touch better had the Wildcats managed to beat LSU, but a two-point loss to the Tigers wasn't damaging enough to prevent the Wildcats from moving up to No. 4, and No. 5 in my poll, after upsetting No. 1 Tennessee 86-69 in a game that didn't feel like much of an upset.

Duke is reclaiming the number-one spot in the Top-25 Men's College Basketball Coaches' Poll.

Duke keeps finding its way back to No. 1.

The victory over Duke bumped the Zags up to No. 1, but their stay lasted just a couple of weeks before they fell to Tennessee in Phoenix.

6 while MI dropped to No. 7, but North Carolina and Houston held steady at No. 8 and No. 9, respectively. The Blue Devils returned to No. 1 on Christmas Eve and spent four more weeks there, but dropped after an overtime home loss to Syracuse.

Michigan and Michigan State will meet as top-10 opponents Sunday for just the third time in the history of the rivalry.

Finally, the flagship S10+ will have a display measuring 6.44 inches, a little larger than the 6.2-inch Galaxy S9 + from 2018. These are the questions that will begin to be answered on Thursday morning when Samsung's Unpacked event kicks off.

The UW Huskies, who held off Washington State 72-70 on the road Saturday, earned 20 points in the poll, putting them four spots out of the top 25. LSU followed up that performance with a narrow win over the weekend at Georgia, and they have now leapfrogged all the way from No. 19 last week to No. 13 in this week's poll.

Kansas State fell five spots to No. 23 for the week's biggest slide.

Reaction: Duke got two votes in the initial poll, with some skepticism about a freshman-led team being able to win on this stage.

Baylor remained the top team in the country, garnering 26 of the 28 first-place votes from the national media panel.

It shouldn't come as a surprise at all that the Blue Devils took the top spot. The Big Ten also has six with Michigan, Michigan State, No. 15 Purdue, No. 21 Iowa, No. 22 Wisconsin and No. 24 Maryland.
