Following a number of major upsets atop the men’s basketball rankings, UNC jumped four spots to No. 7 on Monday in newest edition of the Associated Press Top 25.

The Tar Heels (9-1) defeated Western Carolina 104-61 last Wednesday, and are currently riding a four-game winning streak.

This is the highest that head coach Roy Williams and company have been ranked so far this season.

Undefeated Villanova now sits atop the poll after Boston College upset Duke–the previous No. 1–over the weekend.

The Blue Devils slipped to No. 4 with the loss, with No. 2 Michigan State, No. 3 Wichita State and No. 5 Arizona State making up the rest of the top five.

Miami checks in at No. 6, just ahead of UNC, with No. 8 Kentucky, No. 9 Texas A&M and No. 10 Xavier rounding out the top 10.

In addition to Duke, Miami and UNC, other ACC teams in the top 25 include: No. 16 Virginia, No. 18 Notre Dame and No. 19 Florida State.

No other conference has as many teams ranked as the ACC’s six.

UNC is scheduled to return to action on Sunday, Dec. 17 with a top-25 road showdown in Knoxville against No. 20 Tennessee.
