NCAA Power 16 Rankings

Tue, 11/27/2012 - 10:55am

The first College Power 16 of the season has a decided Big Ten Conference flavor near the top.

The Indiana Hoosiers and Michigan Wolverines are 1-2 and Ohio State No. 5.

It doesn’t end there.

Jetting to No. 12 is one of the surprise teams of the season so far, Illinois, which rolled the competition (USC, Chaminade and Butler) by an average margin of 23 points.

Interestingly enough, Coach John Groce’s club struggled when it returned home, finally eking out a 63-62 win over Gardner-Webb on Sunday.
