Big Ten basketball power rankings (Jan. 18)

After two losses by Michigan State and one by Maryland this past week, there's a new No. 1 in the Big Ten.

Every Monday of the Big Ten Conference men's basketball season, The Baltimore Sun will present its weekly power rankings of the league's NCAA tournament-level teams.

Dropping out after two blowout losses in three games is Ohio State. A win over Kentucky just ain't worth what it used to be.

The rankings primarily consider teams' efficiency, head-to-head results and health, among other criteria.
