Last week, Ohio State was ranked No. 10 in the AP Poll and No. 11 in the ESPN/USA Today Coaches' Poll. But, after a pair of two-point wins and buzzer-beating shots against Northwestern and Michigan State, the Buckeyes moved one spot ahead of the Spartans in both polls.
Despite the lead in the polls, and being tied atop the Big Ten with a record of 13-5, Ohio State will be the three-seed in the upcoming Big Ten Tournament. The Buckeyes will play the winner of Purdue and Nebraska on Friday at 9 p.m. EST on the Big Ten Network.
