Tar Heels fall in latest polls
By Robbi Pickeral
North Carolina -- which was blown out at top-ranked Indiana last week before beating UAB big on Saturday -- fell Monday to No. 20 in the Associated Press poll, and to No. 16 in the USA Today coaches poll.
Around the ACC, Duke (which beat three top-five teams in November) stayed at No. 2 in both rankings. NC State fell to No. 25 in the AP ratings, and to No. 24 in the coaches poll. Maryland received votes in the AP; undefeated Virginia Tech received votes from the coaches.
