College Basketball Coaches Poll: Ohio State Still No. 2

Just like in the AP Poll, the Ohio State Buckeyes stayed at No. 2 this week in the ESPN/USAToday Coaches Poll. The Buckeyes received a single first place vote, thus preventing Syracuse from being the unanimous No. 1 team in college basketball:

The poll was not as kind to Cleveland State. The Vikings, who received seven votes in the AP Poll, received none in the Coaches Poll.
