      Syracuse moves up to #6 in AP, coaches polls

      Louisville, taking advantage of weekend losses by Duke and Michigan, is number 1 in The Associated Press' college basketball poll.

      Syracuse is sixth in the latest ranking, which was released Monday afternoon. The Orange are also number 6 in the USA Today coaches poll, which mirrors the AP poll through the top 8.

      This is just the second time the Cardinals have the top ranking. They were No. 1 in the final poll of the 2008-09 season. The Orange face the Cardinals on Saturday in Louisville.

      Louisville (15-1) moved up from No. 3. The Cardinals have won 10 straight games since losing to Duke in the championship game of the Battle 4 Atlantis.

      In a poll with five teams receiving first-place votes, Louisville was No. 1 on 36 ballots from the 65-member national media panel Monday. Indiana, which jumped from fifth to No. 2, drew 13 first-place votes. Duke, which dropped two spots to third, had 14.

      No. 4 Kansas and No. 5 Michigan, which had been second, each got one first-place vote.

      Oregon, VCU, UCLA and Marquette joined the poll this week.

      The top 25 teams in The Associated Press' college basketball poll, with first-place votes in parentheses, records through Jan. 13, total points based on 25 points for a first-place vote through one point for a 25th-place vote and last week's ranking:
