Husker Basketball Team Breaks AP Top 25 For First Time In Years

On the heels of a 7-1 start, the Nebraska men’s basketball team is now ranked 24th in the Associated Press poll released Monday. It marks the first time that the Huskers are nationally ranked by the AP since Nov. 17, 2014.

The Huskers had been ranked in the USA Today coaches poll earlier this season.

The Huskers, whose 7-1 start is the program’s best since the 2003-04 season, are one of seven Big Ten teams ranked this week. NU is joined by Michigan (5), Michigan State (10), Wisconsin (12), Iowa (18), Ohio State (19) and Maryland (23). It marks the second straight week that seven Big Ten teams are ranked. Prior to last week, that had not happened since Feb. 9, 1999.

Nebraska is coming off a 2-0 week with a 68-66 win at Clemson and a 75-60 home win over Illinois. 

The Huskers are in action twice this week, traveling to Minnesota on Wednesday before hosting Creighton on Saturday.
