Following a 71-49 blowout loss to Wisconsin on Sunday, Ohio State's basketball dropped in the Associated Press poll from 13th to 18th.
The Buckeyes (18-7) have lost three out of their last four games and host Minnesota on Wednesday.
The Big Ten has three teams in the top 10 – Indiana (No. 1), Michigan State (No. 4) and Michigan (No. 7). Ohio State is one spot ahead of Wisconsin, which rose from 20 to 19. Minnesota is just outside the top 25.
In this week's poll, no team dropped more spots than Ohio State. The Buckeyes continue to struggle finding a scorer beyond forward Deshuan Thomas. He had 18 of Ohio State's 49 points on Sunday and fellow forward Sam Thompson was the next closet scorer with 10 points.
