The Michigan Wolverines are one of the hottest teams in college basketball in the moment and have parlayed that into a re-entry into the AP Top 25 poll, where they come in as the 19th-ranked team in the country.
Michigan has won five-straight games and seven of the last eight after sitting at 11-8 at one point this season just over a month ago. Their wins last week both came on the road at Rutgers on Wednesday and Purdue on Saturday afternoon.
The Wolverines are one of Maryland, Penn State, Iowa, Ohio State and Michigan State. Here is the full updated poll, which features a new No. 1 team in college basketball.
|5||San Diego State||Mountain West||5|
|8||Seton Hall||Big East||13|
|16||Michigan State||Big Ten||24|
|19||Ohio State||Big Ten||23|
|20||Penn State||Big Ten||16|
The week ahead for Michigan creates not only a chance at two resume-padding wins, but a chance to hit 20 wins in Juwan Howard’s first season at the helm. They will host Wisconsin on Thursday night at Crisler Center before traveling to Columbus on Sunday to take on the Ohio State Buckeyes.
