Not a lot of movement this week with the lack of games, but the Duke Blue Devils do move to top of both the AP and Coaches polls after Indiana’s loss. In my ranking system, any RPI top (100) win is a good win and any RPI top (50) obviously worth more. Any losses outside the RPI top (100) is considered a bad loss, and outside the RPI (150) are even more damaging. I’m not counting future results only if I think a team would make the NCAA’s if selections were made the day of the post. Teams get a “*” for top 50 good wins or “*” greater 150 losses. My RPI rankings come from, CBSSportsline.com. This is going to be a weekly article, where I seed the ACC teams where I think they’d placed if the tournament started the same day as my posting.

Expect Some Rust for Duke tonight as they host Cornell

It has been so long since Duke last played a game that I may have to look at a roster to know who exactly is playing on this year’s team. Okay maybe not that long.

But it has been a number of days since the Blue Devils dispatched the Temple Owls before going on break for...
