Louisville Falls To No. 6 In New AP Poll

USA Today Sports

AP voters hate Russ Smith.

Apparently the Associated Press Top 25 voters won't be impressed until the Cards win by 100.

A week after dismantling College of Charleston and UMKC by scores of 80-38 and 99-47, the Louisville basketball team actually fell a spot from No. 5 to No. 6 in the new AP poll. U of L was displaced in the top five by unbeaten Florida, which was preceded in the rankings by Syracuse, Michigan, Duke and No. 1 Indiana.

The top five is the same over at the USA Today Poll, where Louisville resides at No. 6 for a second straight week.

Kentucky slid even further down the ranks of the "also receiving votes" in the AP poll, going from No. 26 with 186 votes to No. 28 with just 44 votes. The Wildcats dropped from No. 19 to No. 22 in the coaches' poll.

Memphis, Louisville's opponent on Saturday, did not receive a vote in either poll for the first time this season.

Here are your full rankings for this week:
