After last Tuesday’s upset at Penn State, Michigan basketball risked falling out of the top-10 for the first time since Nov. 12. The Wolverines (23-3) salvaged this with a double-digit victory over then No. 24 Maryland Saturday.

Michigan was only docked one place in the rankings, checking in at No. 7 in the today’s AP Top-25 Poll.

Michigan State climbed to No. 10, ensuring an in-state top-10 tilt Sunday at Crisler Center (3:45 p.m. ET, CBS). Both teams are tied atop the conference standings at 12-3.

Duke retook the top spot after previously No. 1 Tennessee fell by 17 points at Kentucky. Gonzaga, Virginia, the Wildcats and the Volunteers round out the top-five.

The Big Ten as a whole has four other teams ranked: No. 15 Purdue, No. 21 Iowa, No. 22 Wisconsin and No. 24 Maryland.

Before this weekend’s fight for the state and first-place in the conference, Michigan travels to Minnesota Thursday (7 p.m. ET, ESPN).
