NCAA Basketball Rankings: Ohio St. Buckeyes Hold At No. 3

The latest AP college basketball Rankings have the top six teams unchanged through the latest rendition of the Top 25. Most significant for the Big Ten Conference is the sustained No. 3 ranking for the Ohio St. Buckeyes, whom have not lost since early January against the Illinois Fighting Illini (16-7).

The Michigan St. Spartans (18-5) drop from No. 9 to No. 11 after a surprise and low-scoring 41-42 loss to the spoil-happy Illinois Illini. Also moving in the rankings are the Wisconsin Badgers (No. 23, down from No. 19), the Michigan Wolverines (No. 22, moving up from No. 23) and the Indiana Hoosiers (No. 23, down from No. 20).
