NCAA Basketball Rankings: Michigan, Michigan State Are Both Top 10 In The AP Poll

Michigan gets into AP Top 10 for first time all season.

Michigan State dropped back-to-back games this week to Indiana and Ohio State, falling from No. 5 to No. 8 in both the AP Poll and the ESPN/USA Today Coaches' Poll. Michigan, meanwhile, beat both Illinois and Penn State this week to move into the AP top 10 for the first time all season.

With the two losses, the Spartans also fell into a three-way tie for first place in the Big Ten with Michigan and Ohio State. Michigan State, however, will still have the one-seed in the Big Ten tournament, while Michigan is the two-seed, followed by Ohio State.
