COLUMBUS, Ohio (WCMH) — The Ohio State Buckeyes men’s basketball team moved up to No. 13 in the latest AP Top 25 Poll despite playing no games the past week.

This is the highest ranking for the Buckeyes in the 2021-22 season after having had its last three games canceled due to COVID-19 concerns in the Ohio State program.

Ohio State’s Tuesday game against New Orleans was recently called off with the Buckeyes next scheduled game coming on Jan. 2 against the Nebraska Cornhuskers in Lincoln.

The Buckeyes are the third highest ranked team in top 25 with Big Ten rivals Purdue and Michigan State above them cracking the top ten.
