The Michigan Wolverines held steady at No. 3 in the latest AP Top 25 and USA Today Coaches' Polls. The Wolverines remain behind the Indiana Hoosiers and Duke Blue Devils.

Michigan moved to 7-0 on the season after a 2-0 week, including a key 79-72 victory over the then No. 18 North Carolina State Wolfpack in the Big Ten-ACC Challenge. Star guard Trey Burke scored 18 points and dished out 11 assists in the home victory.

Michigan also pulled out a tough 74-66 victory on the road when they beat the Bradley Braves on Saturday. In Nik Stauskas' first start, the freshman scored 22 points on 8-of-15 shooting to lead the Wolverines.

Elsewhere, the Michigan State Spartans dropped from No. 13 to No. 19 in the AP Poll and from No. 14 to No. 17 in the Coaches' Poll after splitting two games last week. The Spartans were upset in the Big Ten-ACC Challenge by the Miami Hurricanes before easily dispatching Nicholls State. Michigan State currently sits at 6-2 on the year.
