Syracuse moves up in AP poll after winning first game of the season

The Syracuse Men's Basketball team is now ranked #8 in the AP poll after beating San Diego State University on Sunday.
(SU ATHLETICS/ WSYR-TV) - The opening weekend of the 2012-13 college basketball season did little to change The Associated Press' Top 25, but the Orange did move up one spot.

Led by Indiana and Louisville, the first seven teams in the initial regular-season poll were the same as the preseason Top 25. The Hoosiers (1-0) were again a solid No. 1, receiving 46 first-place votes from the 65-member national media panel. Louisville (1-0) was No. 1 on 18 ballots.

Kentucky (1-0), which received one first-place vote, was third, followed by Ohio State, Michigan, North Carolina State and Kansas.

Syracuse and Duke swapped places at eighth and ninth and Florida again rounded out the top 10.

The only newcomer to the poll is Connecticut (1-0), which jumped in at No. 23 after beating then-No. 14 Michigan State (0-1) in a game played in Germany. Florida State (0-1), which lost 76-71 to South Alabama, dropped out from 25th.
