Michigan is a top-5 team, MSU top-10 in latest AP basketball poll

Michigan is off to its best start since the 2012-13 season. It now holds its highest ranking since that season. The Wolverines are No. 5 in the latest Associated Press top-25 poll, released Monday afternoon, their best showing since being ranked fourth in the Feb. 25, 2013 poll.

Michigan State fell one spot to No. 10.

The Wolverines climbed two spots from last week after beating then-No. 11 North Carolina and then-No. 19 Purdue, both at home. Only Gonzaga (32 first-place votes), Kansas (31), Virginia and Duke (one each) — unchanged from last week — are ranked ahead of 8-0 Michigan.

The Spartans, meanwhile, lost 82-78 in overtime at Louisville and Tuesday before bouncing back with a win at Rutgers on Friday. They are 6-2 — the highest-ranked two-los team — and host No. 18 Iowa on Monday and visit Florida on Saturday.

Michigan goes to Northwestern on Tuesday and hosts South Carolina on Saturday.
