Thanks to wins over Penn State and No. 8 Minnesota and losses by No. 1 Duke, No. 2 Michigan and No. 4 Arizona last week, Indiana moved up to No. 2 in both the Associated Press and USA Today Coaches’ polls this week.
Louisville was rated No. 1 in both polls. The Cardinals received 36 first-place votes in the AP poll compared to Indiana’s 13. Duke actually received 14 first-place votes, but finished No. 3 in the poll. No. 4 Kansas and No. 5 Michigan received one first-place vote each. No. 9 Minnesota, No. 11 Ohio State, No. 18 Michigan State and No. 23 Illinois gave the Big Ten six teams in the top 25.
In the USA Today poll, Louisville got 18 first-place votes to Indiana’s six. Again, Duke had one more first-place vote than IU with seven, but still finished No. 3 followed by Kansas and Michigan. Ohio State jumped to No. 11. Minnesota fell to No. 12. Michigan State is No. 17 and Illinois is No. 22.
