College basketball rankings: Michigan moves up to No. 2 in nation

Mike Stobe

The Wolverines took advantage of a loss by one of their Big Ten brethren to move up in the rankings.

The Michigan Wolverines moved up to No. 2 in the country in both major college basketball rankings, following former No. 1 Indiana's loss to Butler over the weekend. The Wolverines received three first-place votes in the AP Top 25, while garnering one in the Coaches Poll.

The Wolverines are likely to hold on to their top-two spot for a while, as they face Eastern Michigan and Central Michigan to end the year before starting Big Ten play against Northwestern, Iowa, and Nebraska. Their next big test comes on Jan. 13 at Ohio State.

Michigan State is No. 20 in the AP rankings, dropping one spot despite a win over Tuskegee. The Spartans are No. 19 in the Coaches Poll, the same position as last week.

There are six Big Ten teams total in the rankings, with Indiana at No. 6, Ohio State at No. 7, Illinois at No. 10, and Minnesota at No. 13 in the AP poll and No. 16 in the coaches rankings.
