In the span of a week, Michigan has gone from off the radar to No. 4 in the country.
The Wolverines are off to a 7-0 start under Juwan Howard with wins over Gonzaga, North Carolina, Iowa State and Creighton and the college basketball world has taken notice.
Michigan was unranked in last week’s AP Top 25 poll but now finds itself ranked 4th in the country before Tuesday’s matchup at No. 1 Louisville. The Wolverines received 9 first-place votes and are one of three Big Ten teams ranked in the top six (Maryland 3, Ohio State 6).
Michigan’s jump from unranked to 4th in the country matches the largest-ever jump in the poll’s 70-year history.
