In the wake of its 81-71 loss to Duke at home on Saturday, Virginia fell one spot to No. 4 in the latest AP Top 25 poll, which was released Monday afternoon.

The Cavaliers traded places with Gonzaga, which now is behind just No. 1 Tennessee and the No. 2 Blue Devils.

Virginia has little time to lick its wounds. Coach Tony Bennett’s team challenges No. 8 North Carolina — which is tied with Duke for first place in the ACC —  on the road Monday evening.

Louisville (No. 16), Florida State (No. 17) and Virginia Tech (No. 22) also represent the conference in the AP poll.

Virginia sits at No. 2 in the rankings, behind Duke.
