Ohio State basketball up to 10th, 9th in AP, Coaches Poll Top 25s

Greg Bartram-USA TODAY Sports

The Buckeyes are up one spot in each major poll this week.

Thad Matta and the Ohio State basketball team's 89-50 win over Morgan State (and to a much lesser extent, their 93-63 win over Walsh) has them moving up in each of college basketball's major polls this week.

With Michigan State remaining steadfast at #2 and Michigan holding steady at #7 in the AP but moving up one spot to #8 in the Coaches, the Buckeyes are up in both polls, to #10 in the AP and #9 in the Coaches Poll respectively. Wisconsin remains 20th (AP) and 19th (Coaches) while Indiana is ranked #23 in the Coaches but unranked in the AP. Florida, who'd been ranked #10 in the AP and #8 in the Coaches, falls one and two spots respectively. The Gators looked uneven in a season opening 8 point win over North Florida at home this past Friday.

The Buckeyes have a big week ahead of them with in-state rival Ohio coming to Value City Arena on Tuesday and the Buckeyes heading to Milwaukee this coming weekend to take on #17 Marquette Saturday. A win over Marquette could cement their place in the top 10, while a loss could leave some early season questions about the 2013-14 basketball Bucks.

Here were each major polls beginning with the AP Top 25 and concluding with the USA TODAY Coaches Poll Top 25.
