Ohio State's incredible run continues.
Following an upset victory over then-ranked No. 3 Purdue on Wednesday and a rout of Iowa on Saturday, the Buckeyes jumped to No. 8 in the Associated Press Top 25 poll on Monday, its highest ranking since January of 2014.
Hello, Top Ten.

After dropping back-to-back games to Ohio State and Michigan State, the Boilermakers dropped three spots to No. 6, while the Spartans jumped to No. 2 after the top three teams in the country (Villanova, Virginia, Purdue) all lost.
The only other Big Ten team to appear in the top 25 was Michigan, who dropped two spots to No. 22 after falling to Northwestern, 61-52, on Feb. 6. The Wolverines did however, survive a road trip to Wisconsin on Sunday, defeating the Badgers, 83-72.
Ohio State's jump in the AP poll comes one day after the Buckeyes appeared as a No. 4 seed (No. 14 overall) in the NCAA Tournament Bracket Preview.
