As we approach the end of December and head in to the beginning of the new year, it’s almost time to get focused on the conference match ups in college basketball.

But for now, the out-of-conference slates are still at the forefront, and there was one in particular that drew everyone’s attention. The Duke Blue Devils were able to take down the UCLA Bruins inside their unofficial second home of Madison Square Garden.

Did that win help the Blue Devils climb a little bit in the top 10? Or did they stay right where they were last week?

Let’s have a look as the Associated Press has just released this week’s poll:
