College Basketball Rankings: Ohio State Sinks To 11th In Latest Poll

Kentucky and Syracuse continue to lead the top of the NCAA Basketball polls. Ohio State on the other hand are starting to sink as their results start to get spotty.


It's been a bad week for the Ohio State Buckeyes, they couldn't beat the Wisconsin Badgers, watched as Michigan State took over the Big Ten and now their ranking has fallen too. Ranked the ninth best team in the country last week, the Buckeyes falling form doomed them to a drop in the latest Coaches Poll. They only fell two spots to 11th overall, but it was enough to knock them out of the top ten and their hopes for a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament pretty much fell with it.

Kentucky remained tops in the coaches poll once again, and Syracuse stayed right behind them as both teams have continued to win in dominating fashion over just about everybody they've faced. Duke were moved up a spot to third place and after their huge comeback victory over Mizzou, Kansas moved up to fourth. Big Ten leading Michigan State moved up as well to close out the top five.

Creighton are the only team to move up into the top 25 that weren't there last week, starting out at 24th with Temple right below them.
