U-M stays put in AP Top 25

Despite Sunday's 63-52 loss at Indiana, the Michigan basketball team did not suffer a setback in the AP Top 25.

The Wolverines remain at No. 10 in the poll, one spot below No. 9 Michigan State, which fell from No. 7 after an upset loss to Georgetown this weekend.

The Wolverines took an 11-spot jump from No. 21 to No. 10 in last week's poll, thanks to an incredible three-game run in which they beat three straight teams that were, at the time, ranked in the top 10.

The fact that the Wolverines' 10-game winning streak, which included the team's first eight conference games of the year, ended did not seem to upset voters too much.

The Big Ten, on the other hand, took a big hit.

Iowa dropped from No. 15 to No. 17 this week. Wisconsin, which was ranked No. 14 in the AP poll last week, tumbled all the way out of the rankings, after consecutive losses to Northwestern and Ohio State.

And despite their win over the Badgers, the Buckeyes fell out of the rankings from No. 24, thanks to a home upset loss to Big Ten bottom-dweller Penn State.

The Wolverines took a slight spill in the USA Today Coaches' Poll, falling from No. 14 to No. 16.

Everyone else in the Big Ten fell, too. The Spartans check in at No. 8, a week after being ranked sixth. Iowa dropped one spot from No. 12 to No. 13.

The Badgers did not fall quite as far as they did in the AP Poll, checking in at No. 24. The Buckeyes just barely slip into the Coaches' poll, sitting at No. 25.
