Purdue basketball moved into the top 10 of this week’s AP Top 25 poll. The Boilermakers (15-2, 4-0 Big Ten) moved up to No. 5 in the latest rankings. They are tied for the fifth spot in the rankings with Wichita State.
It’s the first time Purdue has been in the top 5 of the AP poll since the 2009-2010 season.
Purdue has won 11 games in a row, the latest in the form of a 74-62 home win against Nebraska on Saturday afternoon. Matt Painter’s team will look to add to that winning streak on Tuesday night at Michigan (9 p.m. ET, ESPN).
Purdue also got some help from Ohio State on Sunday as the Buckeyes handed then-No. 1 Michigan State its first Big Ten loss of the season. Purdue and Ohio State are the only two remaining Big Ten teams that are undefeated in league play.
