'Cuse Still No. 1 in Both Polls

Despite playing two inferior opponents during the week, the 13-0 Syracuse men's basketball team held the top spot in both the Associated Press and ESPN/USA Today polls.

Syracuse (13-0) defeated Bucknell and Tulane by the same score during the week, 80-61, and it was enough to hold the top spot in both men's basketball polls.

The Orange got all but one first place vote in the ESPN/USA Today ballot, with the remaining vote going to Ohio State (12-1) - who ranks second in both polls.

Kentucky (11-1), Louisville (12-0) and Duke (10-1) round out the top five in the ESPN/USA Today poll, while Kentucky, Louisville and North Carolina (10-2) hold the No. 3, No. 4 and No. 5 sports in the AP Poll.

Syracuse opens up Big East play Wednesday at home against Seton Hall.
