Indiana men’s basketball ranked No. 13 in preseason AP Poll


Indiana men’s basketball is back in the AP Poll for the first time since 2018-19, entering the preseason ranked No. 13. 

Indiana is the highest-ranked Big Ten team, with Michigan ranked at No. 22 and Illinois at No. 23. 

The University of North Carolina is the preseason No. 1 team. The Hoosiers face the Tar Heels on Nov. 30 in Bloomington. 

Other ranked opponents for Indiana include the University of Kansas, who is ranked No. 5, and Arizona, who is ranked No. 17.  

It’s the first time Indiana was ranked in the preseason poll since 2016-17, when the Hoosiers were ranked No. 11. While they reached as high as No. 3 in the poll that season, they missed the NCAA Tournament. The last time the Hoosiers were ranked at all was on Jan. 14, 2019, when they were ranked No. 25. 

Indiana’s season tips off against Morehead State University at 7 p.m. on Nov. 7 in Bloomington.
