Ohio State Falls Out Of Associated Press Top 25 Men’s Basketball Poll Following Loss At Xavier

The Buckeyes suffered their first defeat of the season against the Musketeers on Thursday evening.

The Ohio State men’s basketball team fell out of the Associated Press Top 25 Poll following its 71-65 loss at Xavier on Thursday, ending the program’s streak of being ranked in 18 consecutive regular-season games.

The Buckeyes started the season at No. 17 in the AP Poll, but fell to No. 19 last week following a one-point win over Akron in the season opener, as well as a double-digit win over Niagara.

Ohio State then beat Bowling Green with ease, leading by as many as 28 at one point in the first half, but could not improve to 4-0 as it dropped a tough game on the road against the Musketeers.

The Buckeyes are back in action this evening against No. 21 Seton Hall as part of the Fort Myers Tip-Off. That game is set for 6 p.m. on FS1.

That said, the full AP Top 25 can be found below, with first-place votes in parenthesis:

  1. Gonzaga (55)
  2. UCLA (5)
  3. Purdue (1)
  4. Kansas
  5. Duke
