Villanova falls one spot in AP poll

An 11-point win at Syracuse could not keep Villanova from falling on spot in the Assocated Press top 25. The Wildcats remain No. 7 in the Coaches Poll.
Villanova fell to No. 8 in the AP Poll despite an 83-72 victory over the Orange in front of more than 33,000 at the Carrier Dome last Saturday. A last-second 61-59 loss at Connecticut last Monday cost the Wildcats that one spot.
The win over Villanova, followed by a victory over Tennessee, vaulted UConn to fifth in both polls.
Ohio State remains No. 1 in both polls, followed by Pittsburgh, Duke, San Diego State, Connecticut and Kansas. Texas and Villanova trade spots in both polls. Texas is seventh in the AP poll and eighth in the Coaches poll. Brigham Young and Syracuse round out the top 10 in both polls.
The Wildcats complete a three-game road trip Wednesday night at Providence. Villanova is 2-1 on the road in the Big East.
