College basketball rankings: Indiana back on top of USA Today poll

USA TODAY Sports

Indiana is back on top of the USA Today Coaches Poll after the former No. 1, Duke, fell down to the No. 6 spot following a loss.

The USA Today Top 25 coaches poll was released on Monday, and there's some change at the top, once again. The Indiana Hoosiers are back on top after cruising to relatively easy victories over the Nebraska Cornhuskers on Feb. 13 and the Purdue Boilermakers on Feb. 16.

Meanwhile, the Duke Blue Devils, last week's No. 1 team, lost a close one to unranked Maryland on Feb. 16, snapping a six-game winning streak. They've dropped to No. 6 on the poll, and didn't receive a single first-place vote.

No. 4 Miami moved up significantly after extending their winning streak to 13 games, beating Clemson and FSU in their most recent contests. That winning streak also included a win over Duke, who was No. 1 at the time, and then-No. 19 NC State.

Gonzaga, Florida and Michigan State round out the top five. Gonzaga was at No. 3 last week and they remain there this week, Florida was at No. 6 and they've moved up, while Michigan State is making the jump from No. 8.

Indiana received 19 first place votes, Miami received seven, Gonzaga received three and Florida received two. Indiana has a big test on the horizon, with a matchup against the No. 4 Spartans on Feb. 19.
