1. Duke (14-2, 4-1) Previous ranking: T-1 // Average ranking: 1.0. I’m glad my fellow voters came to their senses. Yes, the Miami loss was bad, but Duke is far and away the best team in the ACC and proved that this week. First came a victory on the road at Wake Forest Wednesday, where the Blue Devils played perhaps their best basketball of the year during a 22-1 run to end the first half/open the second. And then came another convincing win against N.C. State, this one at home, in which Duke’s starters played perhaps their best all-around game of the season. Consistency will be key if the Blue Devils want to bring home the regular-season ACC crown outright, but there shouldn't be any doubt about who sits atop these power rankings. -Evan Kolin.
