Ohio State basketball makes big move in latest AP College Poll


The Ohio State basketball team keeps winning, and, as a result, keeps moving up the national polls. The Associated Press College Basketball Poll was released Monday and the Buckeyes have moved up from No. 23 to No. 19 after wins at Nebraska and at home against a ranked Michigan squad.

The Big Ten has eight teams ranked in the poll. Maryland is the highest-rated team at No. 9, followed by Michigan State (16), Iowa (18), Penn State (20), Illinois (23), Wisconsin (24) and Michigan (25).

After a January to forget, Ohio State has won eight of its last 10 to move from 2-6 in the Big Ten to 10-8 and solidified its spot far away from NCAA Tournament bubble territory.

The top ten in the AP Poll are Kansas (1), Gonzaga (2), Dayton (3), Baylor (4), San Diego State (5), Kentucky (6), Florida State (7), Seton Hall (8), Maryland (9), and Louisville (10).
