It’s Taken 20 Years but Michigan is #1 in College Basketball (For Now)
It’s time to update college basketball’s top teams as the landscape changes week to week this time of year. Duke was the #1 team until they lost to Miami, 90-63. They did bounce back with a win against Maryland, 84-64, but that wasn’t enough to get them back to #1. The new #1 team is Michigan who hasn’t been #1 in 20 years since the days of the Fab 5.
The Wolverines are followed by Kansas at #2, #3 Indiana, #4 Florida and Duke is at #5. Michigan has a tough road ahead as they try to hang on to the #1 ranking. They play #3 Indiana on February 3rd, Big 10 rival and #11 raked Ohio State (who they lost to earlier this season) on February 5th and #13 and Big 10 rival Michigan State, February 12th.
