NCAA tab
By JOHN BOSCHINI

It's more of the same at the top of the table this week as the top four schools in the NSCAA poll, Akron, Louisville, Maryland and North Carolina, stayed in the same position as last week. Southern Methodist moved up one spot to round out the Top 5, bumping Connecticut down to No. 6. The Zips again received all 23 first-place votes.

Buter's perfect record may be a thing of the past, but the Bulldogs retained some respect, dropping only one spot to No. 8. Virginia dropped out of the Top 10 for the first time this season, landing at No. 11.

Charlotte continue to climb up the rankings, rising from unranked two weeks ago to No. 16. Michigan State is headed in the opposite direction, dropping seven spots to No. 23.

Duke's freefall continues as the Blue Devils drop out of the rankings for the first time this season. They are joined on the outside looking in by South Carolina and Ohio State. Indiana, UC Santa Barbara and William & Mary broke into the rankings at No. 25, No. 19 and No. 17, respectively.
