The AP released its final men’s college basketball top 25 of the season on Monday, the day after NCAA Tournament brackets and seedings were released.
UNC finished the season at No. 6 in the poll, despite earning one of four No. 1 seeds in the big dance.
Defending national champion Villanova–the tournament’s top overall seed–checked in as the nation’s top-ranked team, with Gonzaga, Kansas, Arizona and Kentucky making up the rest of the top five.
Each of those teams won its conference tournament this past week, something the Tar Heels failed to do after falling to Duke in the ACC Semifinals.
Arizona is the No. 2 seed in the West Region with Gonzaga, while Kentucky is the No. 2 seed in the South Region with UNC despite being ranked higher by the AP.
Having spent all season with more ranked schools than every other conference in America, the ACC fittingly did so again in the final poll–with six teams included.
Duke–a No. 2 seed in the East Region–moved up to the No. 7 ranking after winning the ACC Tournament.
Fellow No. 2 seed Louisville is the league’s third top-10 school, checking in at No. 10.
Notre Dame (No. 14), Florida State (No. 16) and Virginia (No. 24) are the other ACC teams that finished among the top 25.
