With the biggest win in the country over opening weekend, the Indiana Hoosiers jumped from 11th to 6th in the latest Associated Press poll.

Duke and Kentucky remained first and second while Villanova, Oregon and UNC all moved up a spot to make up the top five.

Kansas, who was ranked third, fell to seventh while Virginia, Wisconsin and Arizona held serve to round out the top ten.

The Hoosiers did get one first-place vote while Kentucky got one, Villanova got five and Duke took the remaining 58.

The ranking is the highest for the Hoosiers since the 2012-13 season when the team finished fourth in the AP poll and spent just one week ranked outside the top six.

Indiana hosts UMass-Lowell and Liberty this week before traveling to IPFW and hosting Mississippi Valley State next week.
