After a successful trip to the Hawaiian islands to take part in the Maui Invitational, the Ohio State basketball team has broken into both the USA TODAY Sports Coaches Poll as well as the AP Top 25. The Buckeyes have an overall record of 5-1, and that includes a 2-1 trip in Maui that resulted in the Buckeyes manhandling Cincinnati and then upsetting a ranked Texas Tech team. The lone loss came to another ranked San Diego State team in the first game of the tournament. Still, it was a good trip all things considered and it sure looked like Ohio State was starting to figure out a bit of an identity and start to understand some roles, rotations, and effort.
