The Michigan Wolverines are off to a 3-0 start and moved up one spot in the latest Associated Press top 25 rankings. The Wolverines are No. 4 in the latest poll.

Michigan received 1,388 points, a 61-point increase from their total in Week 2. The Wolverines went 2-0 last week with two blowout victories, defeating IUPUI, 91-54, on Monday before knocking off Cleveland State, 77-47, on Tuesday.

While the Wolverines are No. 4 in the country, they are just the third highest ranked Big Ten team. Indiana remained No. 1, with the Hoosiers collecting 46 of the 65 first-place votes. Like Michigan, Ohio State moved up one spot this week and are now No. 3.

Michigan and Ohio State moved up in the rankings thanks to Kentucky's loss to Duke. The Wildcats dropped from No. 3 to No. 8. The Wolverines' next opponent, Pittsburgh, received 43 votes this week, putting them just outside of the top 25.

The Michigan State Spartans also moved up, jumping six spots to No. 15. The Spartans went 2-0 last week, including a 67-64 win against Kansas.
