After the victory on Saturday, the Indiana men’s basketball team enters this week’s Associated Press poll ranked at No. 18 and the USA Today/Coaches poll ranked at No. 20. IU earned 462 votes in the AP poll and 171 points in the USA Today/Coaches poll.
Not sure how long it has been since IU has been in top 25, I really like Coach Crean’s comments when the rankings came out: “These players have certainly earned it,” said IU Coach Tom Crean. “We have to continue to stay locked in to our own goals and understand we still have an opportunity to get better. We have to continue to prepare with the same mindset and focus that we have shown thus far this season.”
