Michigan Basketball continues to climb up various rankings

Michigan basketball is still undefeated and the various rankings across college basketball are finally starting to give them the respect that they deserve.

Michigan basketball will take on the Wisconsin Badgers on Tuesday night in a matchup against two top-ten teams. Even though the Wolverines are one of the few remaining undefeated teams, it wasn’t until very recently that they started to rise up the rankings.

Here is where Michigan ranks in all of the various college basketball rankings:

AP Poll: 7th

KenPom: 7th

T-Rank (BartTorvik): 6th

NET: 4th

BPI: 12th

Michigan has cemented themselves as a consensus top-10 team up to this point, but they will have several chances in the coming weeks to boost their resume and pick up wins over good teams.

Michigan’s next two games are both against ranked opponents as they take on 9th ranked Wisconsin Tuesday night followed by 16th ranked Minnesota this weekend.

The Big Ten has been by far the best conference in all of college basketball this season and the rankings continue to reflect that. In the new AP Poll that was released today, six Big Ten teams found themselves inside the top-25.

  • 5. Iowa
  • 7. Michigan
  • 9. Wisconsin
  • 14. Illinois
  • 21. Ohio State
  • 23. Minnesota

Not only were six Big Ten teams ranked, four others received votes in the AP Poll this week. Rutgers, Northwestern, Michigan State, and Indiana all received votes and are on the cusp of being ranked inside the top-25.

Conference play will be a bloodbath this year for all Big Ten teams and every game is a potential loss regardless of your opponent. Right now, Michigan continues to play the best basketball out of everyone in the conference and we’ll see if they are able to continue that great play and continue to rise up the rankings.

We will find out how for real this Michigan basketball team is after they face their toughest test yet on Tuesday night.
