USATSI_8499922_154849602_lowres Despite failing to not only win the title, but reach the title game, Kentucky still received two first place votes in the final coaches poll of the season. Duke, of course, is the No. 1 team in the final rankings, receiving 29 of the 31 first place votes from around the National Association of Basketball Coaches. Tournament runner-up Wisconsin finished second, ahead of Kentucky and its two first places votes.
