Indiana will come to Mackey Arena as a top 25 team.

NCAA Basketball: Purdue at Wisconsin Mary Langenfeld-USA TODAY Sports

For the third time this season Purdue will host the No. 25 team in America according to the AP Poll. Maryland and Iowa were both at No. 25 when Purdue played them at home, and that is where Indiana will be on Saturday. The Hoosiers stayed in after an 0-2 week on the road and Purdue still hung on to a few votes this week after winning at Wisconsin.

  1. Duke (36) 1,558
  2. Michigan (9) 1,497

Purdue hung on to 16 votes this week, which is good enough for 32nd. As usual, there are several Big Ten teams also receiving votes such as Nebraska, Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Ohio State. We also now have two wins already over current top 25 teams in Maryland and Iowa.

With a pair of home games this week hopefully we can make a move back into the poll with two wins.
