DURHAM, N.C. – Following a pair of key ACC wins in Cameron Indoor Stadium, the Duke volleyball team climbed five spots to No. 18 in the latest AVCA Coaches Poll. Monday’s poll marks the first time the Blue Devils have been ranked in the top 20 since Duke held the No. 17 spot to begin the 2011 campaign.
Duke (18-3, 9-1) has been on a tear as of late, winning 14 of its past 15 matches. The Blue Devils are currently tied with No. 12 North Carolina atop the ACC standings after wins over then-No. 18 Florida State and Miami this past weekend.
The Blue Devils return to action this weekend as Duke plays host to Syracuse Friday and Boston College Saturday.
