Duke only ACC team in USA TODAY Sports Ferris Mowers Coaches Poll

·2 min read

ACC basketball struggles outside of Duke have been well-documented this season as many have made the case for the league to possibly be only a one-bid league in the NCAA Tournament.

Tons of time remains to be seen if that actually happens (it won’t) but if you need any further proof of the ACC’s struggles look no further than the latest USA TODAY Sports Ferris Mowers Coaches Poll.

Duke is not only the sole ACC team in the top-25 but the only conference team to receive any votes whatsoever.

Notre Dame beat both North Carolina and Georgia Tech last week as they try to scratch their way into a potential postseason discussion, now sitting at 9-5 overall and 3-1 in ACC play.
