Winning Streak Moves Purdue Onto Coaches Poll

Last updated on Tuesday, February 12, 2008

(UNDATED) - Three Indiana schools moved up and one Indiana school moved in to this week’s USA Today / ESPN men’s college basketball poll.

Butler is tenth in this week's rankings, up one spot from last week. It is Butler's highest position this season in the poll and one spot away from their highest ranking ever. This is the 12th straight week that the 21-and-2 Bulldogs have been ranked.

The Indiana Hoosiers moved from 13th to 12th after beating Illinois and Ohio State last week, Notre Dame moved three spots to 18th with recent wins over Seton Hall and Marquette, and Purdue moved into the poll at number 23 after beating Penn State and number-eight Wisconsin.

All of the Indiana teams are enjoying recent success. Indiana has won three straight, Butler and Notre Dame have won five in a row, and Purdue is riding a nine-game winning streak, the sixth longest current streak in men's division one basketball.
