Michigan basketball moved up one spot to No. 18 in this week’s Associated Press Poll.

The Wolverines (2-0) were originally No. 19 in last week’s top-25 to start the 2018-19 season. U-M started the season with back-to-back wins, defeating Norfolk State 63-44 to open the season on Tuesday and then Holy Cross 56-37 on Saturday.

U-M is one of three Big Ten teams who are still ranked nationally with Michigan State at No. 11 and Purdue at No. 23. Other Big Ten teams that received votes are Indiana (131), Nebraska (41), Wisconsin (32), Maryland (28) and Ohio State (14).

The Wolverines will face arguably their toughest test of the non-conference season when they take on No. 8 Villanova at 6 p.m. Wednesday in the Finneran Arena.
