Page 12 - Courier News, Blytheville, ( Ark. )-Tuesday, December 24,1985North Carolina Tops Poll For 5th Straight Week
By The Associated Press
A quiet week in which the nation's college basketball elite fattened up on lesser opposition produced only minor changes in the weddy Associated Press poll.
The poll released Monday was topped for the fifth consecutive week by unbeaten North Carolina and there were no changes in the next 13 positions in balloting by a nationwide panel of sportswriters and broadcasters.
The Tar Heels rebounded from a shaky 69^ decision over Jacksonville to blast Stanford 89-55 and The Citadel 104-51 last week to improve to 10-0. North Carolina received 43 first-place votes and 1,255 points to outdistance No. 2 Michigan, Duke, Syracuse and Georgetown.
Michigan, also 10-0, received 15 first-place votes and 1,199 points to hold second for the fourth straight week.
Duke, 9-0, received four first-place votes and 1,146 points, while Syracuse, 7-0, had 1,061 points.
Georgetown, which improved to
9-0 wiUi a 96-57 rout of Seattle Monday night, had the other two first-place votes and 1,028 points.
Kansas, which beat Arkansas 89-?8 in its op.ly gan?.? !?.st wwk and ripped George Washington 94-71 Monday night to improve to
10-1, is sixth with 959 points, followed by Georgia Tech, 7-1, 898 points; Oklahoma, 9-0, 797; Louisiana State, 11-0,733.
Memphis State, which held 10th with 672 points, won its ninth game without a defeat with an 82-59 decision over Murray State.
St. John's, 10-1 after Monday night's 96-58 laugher over Monmouth, leads the Second Ten, followed by Nevada-Las Vegas, Kentucky, Alabama-Birmingham, Louisville, Illinois, Indiana, Notre Dame, Virginia Tech and DePaul.
Only the order of last week's Second Ten changed. Last week it was St. John's, Nevada-Las Vegas, Kentucky, Alabama-Birmin^m, Illinois, Louisville, Indiana, DePaul, Notrp Dame and Virginia Tech.
Louisville, which beat then-No. 17 Indiana 65-63 last week, Jumped over Illinois, which won its only
game of the week, 67-55 over Missouri.
Indiana remained 17th with the road loss to Louisville, while Notre Dame, which beat Valparaiso 98-54 in its only game, jumped to 18th, replacing DePaul, and Virginia Tech improved one place after beating West Virginia 76-69.
DePaul slipped to 20th after losing 85-70 to Georgetown last Saturday. It was the Blue Demons' first^ver loss at home on national television.
DePaul had more troubles Monday night, dropping a 71-56 decision at Purdue.
