Ohio State took over the No. 1 spot in The Associated Press college basketball poll Monday, the first time the Buckeyes have held the top ranking since 1962 when they were led by Jerry Lucas and John Havlicek and on a run of three consecutive Final Fours. Led by freshmen Greg Oden and Mike Conley Jr., Ohio State advanced one day after beating Wisconsin in a meeting of Nos. 1 and 2. UCLA (25-3), which locked up the Pac-10 title this weekend, moved from fourth to second. The Bruins received the other 10 first-place votes and had 1,729 points. Kansas jumped from sixth to third and Wisconsin, which also lost to Michigan State last week, fell to fourth after reaching No. 1 for the first time in school history. Florida, which lost to LSU on Saturday, fell from third to fifth. Memphis, which has the nation’s longest current winning streak at 17 games, moved up one spot to sixth, its highest ranking of the season, and was followed by Texas A&M, North Carolina and Georgetown. Ohio State (26-3) moved up one spot in the rankings, receiving 62 first-place votes and 1,786 points from the 72-member national media panel. It is the Buckeyes’ first time as No. 1 in the AP rankings since the final poll of the 1961-62 season. Ohio State, which was ranked No. 1 in the coaches’ poll last week, is the fifth team to reach the top of the AP poll this season, joining Florida, UCLA, North Carolina and Wisconsin. It’s the most teams to reach No. 1 since there were six in 2003-04. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!
