At 12-2 the Michigan basketball team is off to a good start almost midway through its season.

It is starting to show in the rankings as well. The Wolverines picked up a No. 13 ranking in the latest ESPN/USA Today coaches poll, the team's highest ranking in either poll since they were the No. 12 team in the country at the end of the 1997-98 season.

The Wolverines moved up two spots, to No. 16, in the latest Associated Press media poll. They have been as high as No. 14 in the country in the AP poll this season.
