Indiana rises to No. 10 in latest Associated Press top 25 poll
After wins against Little Rock and Jackson State last week, Indiana again moved up in the Associated Press top 25 poll.
The Hoosiers are No. 10 in the new AP poll released Monday afternoon, up from No. 11 last week.
It is the first time Indiana has been ranked in the top 10 of the AP poll since December 12, 2016.
Indiana, however, is no longer the highest-ranked Big Ten team in the poll. That distinction belongs to Purdue, which beat Gonzaga and Duke last week and has four wins over high-major opponents. The Boilermakers are ranked No. 5.
North Carolina, Indiana’s opponent in Wednesday’s Big Ten-ACC Challenge game, lost twice last week and fell from No. 1 to No. 18.
Arizona is now the highest-ranked non-conference opponent on IU’s remaining schedule. The Wildcats are No. 4. Kansas, which fell to by 14 points to Tennessee in the Bahamas on Friday, dropped from No. 3 to No. 9.
Other Big Ten teams in this week’s poll include Illinois at No. 16, Michigan State at No. 20, Maryland at No. 22 and Ohio State at No. 25.
Iowa, Michigan, and Wisconsin all received votes this week.
