Michigan received two first place votes (AP) and one first place vote from USA Today, but remain #2 behind Duke. #3 Syracuse had a major drop to #9, after their first loss to Temple. Also nice to see Pittsburgh and Kansas State make the poll at #24 and #25 respectively, since we beat them in the NIT Preseason tourney at Madison Square Gardens. Happy Holidays Michigan Family!!
"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."
