Indiana remains No. 1 in both polls

5 comments by   |   Monday, November 26, 2012 - 1:50 pm EDT

The Associated Press poll is still coming, but Indiana remains No. 1 in the USA Today Coaches’ Poll in a week in which there were a number of shakeups elsewhere. Duke jumped to No. 2 after defeating former No. 2 Louisville on Saturday night to win the Battle of Atlantis championship. The Cardinals fell to No. 6. Michigan stayed at No. 3 after winning the NIT Season Tip-Off and Ohio State holds at No. 4.

North Carolina, the Hoosiers’ opponent on Tuesday, fell to No. 13 after losing to Butler in the Maui Invitational. Michigan State follows at No. 14. Illinois broke in at No. 22 thanks to its championship at Maui, and Georgetown broke in at No. 25 after beating UCLA and taking Indiana to overtime in the Legends Classic in Brooklyn, proof that even playing close with Indiana at this point carries significant weight.

UPDATE: Indiana remains No. 1 in the Associated Press poll as well. The Hoosiers got 47 of the 65 No. 1 votes and No. 2 Duke got the other 18. Michigan, Ohio State and Louisville round out the top five. North Carolina is No. 14 and Georgetown is No. 20.

interesting that it appears IU got 2 votes for #3 in this poll. Duke got 4 #1 votes, but based on the total points in the poll, IU either got 2 #2 votes and 2 #3 votes or 3 #2 votes and a 4th place vote.

27 x 25 points = 675
2 x 24 points = 48
2 x 23 points = 46
total =769

if they got 3 #2 votes, then they got 1 4th place vote

IU looks great! As a born Hoosier living in NC, I hope IU steps all over the Tar Heels! There is a long tradition of that after all. Z will be the difference. But no Tar Heel can guard Victor O. Yogi should dominate at point.

Andy I agree, big Z should have a huge game. I would expect the same for victor. By the way, are you the famous andy that I have heard so much about from Ginny? She always tells me about her son in NC that’s a huge IU fan and has his classroom full of IU stuff
