The Indiana University men’s basketball team took the No. 1 spot again in the NCAA rankings following their win against the Michigan Wolverines on Saturday.

Cody Zeller and Victor Oladipo led the Hoosiers to the 81-73 win against formerly top-ranked Michigan, with Zeller scoring 19 points and nine rebounds and Oladipo finishing with 15 points.

The rest of IU’s starting lineup also scored double figures Saturday, with Christian Watford hitting 14 points and Jordan Hulls with 11.

The Hoosiers (20-2, 8-1 in Big Ten) held the No. 1 spot for the first seven weeks in the season, but they dropped in rankings after their loss to the Butler Bulldogs in December.

Several other teams have taken the No. 1 spot in the polls this season, including Louisville, Kansas and Duke.

Two other Indiana teams also made the top 25.  Butler went down five spots to No. 14, while Notre Dame jumped one spot to No. 25.
