(February 11, 2013)--Indiana remained No. 1 Monday in The Associated Press' Top 25 a loss, surviving a week of upsets to become the first team in over a month to hold onto the top ranking.
The Hoosiers (21-3) lost to Illinois on a last-second basket Thursday, but rebounded with a win at Ohio State on Sunday.
In a week when four of the top five teams and six of the top 10 lost, it was enough to keep the No. 1 ranking.
It ends a stretch of five consecutive weeks with a new No. 1, two weeks short of the longest such stretch in 1993-94. Duke started the run followed by Louisville, Duke again, Michigan and Indiana.
