Following a 10-day layoff to give the players time to focus on their finals, the Ohio State men’s basketball team was back in action on Saturday, and held off a surging Bucknell Bison squad to get the victory 73-71. Thanks to that performance, the Ohio State Buckeyes remain No. 15 in the latest AP poll.
The top five this week are No. 1 Kansas, No. 2 Duke, No. 3 Tennessee, No. 4 Michigan, and No. 5 Virginia. Big Ten teams joining OSU and Michigan in the rankings are No. 10 Michigan State, No. 16 Wisconsin, No. 22 Indiana, No. 23 Iowa, and No. 25 Nebraska.
