2012 AP College Basketball Poll – Week 9

Week 9 sees Syracuse maintaining their hold on the number one spot in the first AP college basketball poll of 2012. The Orange don’t play a ranked team until February, so it is very possible we’ll see them remain in the top spot for at least another few weeks. Kentucky climbs one spot to #2 after defeating then #4 ranked Louisville at home and Ohio State losing on the road at Indiana. UNC jumps two spots to #3, Baylor to #4, and Duke was at #5 but will likely drop next week with losing to Temple this week.
