With the ACC tournament looming, Virginia jumped four spots to earn its highest rank in the AP poll this season, checking in at No. 3 after a 20-point home win against North Carolina State on Feb. 15 and despite a one-point loss to Duke on Feb. 13.

The Cavaliers (21-5, 10-4 ACC) share the No. 3 rank in this week’s poll, released Monday, with Oklahoma (21-5, 9-4 Big 12). The Sooners are coming off a Saturday road win against then-No. 10 West Virginia.

The No. 3 spot makes Virginia the top-rated ACC team, though No. 7 North Carolina (22-5, 11-3), which Virginia hosts Saturday, is at the top of the ACC’s standings. Virginia and No. 12 Miami (21-5, 10-4) are tied for second in the league and will battle for sole ownership of the No. 2 spot Monday in Coral Gables, Fla. The game will be broadcast on ESPN and tipoff is at 7 p.m.  Miami dropped one spot to No. 12 after taking a 25-point drubbing from UNC in Chapel Hill on Saturday.
