UVA's streak in AP Top 25 comes to an end
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (CBS19 SPORTS) -- For the first time since late November 2017, the Associated Press Top 25 does not include the Virginia men's basketball team.
After a pair of losses to non-ranked opponents last week, the Wahoos fell from the latest AP poll on Monday. It's the first time UVA has been unranked since November 20, 2017, ending a streak of 46 consecutive weeks in the AP poll for the UVA program -- a streak that included 38 weeks in the top 10, 30 in the top 5, and five at No. 1.
According to CollegePollArchive.com, UVA's streak of 46 weeks in the AP Top 25 was the third-longest in program history, and the fifth-longest active streak in the country.
The Wahoos had been ranked No. 18 last week, but then lost 60-53 at Boston College on Tuesday, then 63-55 at home in overtime to Syracuse on Saturday. UVA will take an 11-4 record (3-2 ACC) into Wednesday night's game at No. 9 Florida State.
