Ohio State men ranked #1

The Ohio State men’s basketball team is ranked #1 in both major polls this week for the first time since the 2006-2007 season. Bob Baptist of the Columbus Dispatch mentioned in his blog that the Bucks were #1 in the last poll that season, before going into the NCAA Tournament and losing to Florida in the championship game. Before that, Bob says you have to go back to 1962 to find OSU at the top of the polls.

OSU has been somewhat unimpressive lately. The schedule has been somewhat soft too, with more ranked opponents coming up in the near future. There will be a whole lot more ESPN/ESPN2 appearances as well, starting a week from tonight.

The Kentucky men had big wins over Auburn and LSU to go to 2-1 in the Southeastern Conference. The Cats are ranked #12 in both polls this week.
