LOS ANGELES -- The top four teams in last week's Associated Press poll all lost, yet none dropped below No. 6 San Diego State or No. 7 Brigham Young, which didn't.
With scrambled eggs to pick from in their weekly assessments of the largely underwhelming regular season, poll voters did what comes naturally: They ushered Duke back to No. 1 with a police escort.
It mattered not that Duke lost to Florida State or got blown out at St. John's or plays in the shockingly (this year) unspectacular Atlantic Coast Conference, or most recently cleaned up against unranked Georgia Tech.
