Syracuse (WSYR-TV) – The Syracuse University men’s basketball team is still undefeated after beating Binghamton on Saturday and the Orange have been rewarded with spots closer to the top in both major polls.

The Orange – and also Arizona – took advantage of a major upset for previously top-ranked Michigan State to move up.

SU improved to No. 2 in the Associated Press poll and No. 3 in the ESPN/USA Today Coaches poll.

The Wildcats are ranked No. 1 in both polls.

Ohio State switched places with SU in both polls, moving up to No. 3 in the AP poll and No. 2 in the Coaches poll.

Wisconsin moved up to No. 4 in the AP poll and Louisville moved up to No. 4 in the Coaches poll.

Michigan State slid to No. 5 in both polls. The Spartans lost to unranked North Carolina at home on Wednesday.

The results for both polls are available on the USA Today website.
