More losses drop Minnesota to 23rd in new AP basketball poll

  • Updated: January 29, 2013 - 4:10 AM

Four straight losses have dropped the Gophers to No. 23 in the latest Associated Press basketball poll. Minnesota lost on Wednesday night at Northwestern and then by one point at Wisconsin on Saturday afternoon, dropping its record from 15-1 to 15-5.

The Gophers were ranked No. 12 last week.

Michigan, one of the four teams to beat Minnesota during the losing streak, is the new No. 1 team in the nation, replacing Duke.

Three other Big Ten teams are ranked: Indiana at No. 3, Ohio State at No. 11 and Michigan State at No. 13.

For the second straight week the No. 1 team lost. This time it was Duke, which was routed 90-63 by Miami in the third-worst defeat by a top-ranked team.

Michigan received 51 first-place votes from the 65-member national media panel Monday, 38 more than Kansas, which moved up one spot. They are the only one-loss teams in the poll.

The Wolverines advanced from No. 2 to take the No. 1 spot for the fourth time. They were there for 10 weeks in 1964-65, eight weeks in 1976-77 and three weeks at the start of 1992-93.
