Wolverines climb into top-5 of Coaches Poll
Written by Matt Pargoff   

Standing at 6-0, Michigan continues to rise in the nation polls, entering the top-5 of the Coaches Poll on Monday.

The Wolverines rose three spots in the Coaches Poll to No. 5 in the most recent release, climbing two places in the Associated Press Poll to No. 7.

Michigan has won by an average of 22.5 point per game so far, most recently blowing out Chattanooga 83-55. The Wolverines will return to action on Wednesday, facing off against North Carolina at 9:30 p.m. eastern on ESPN. The Tar Heels slipped out of the top-10 following a three-point loss to Texas last week, but remain in the rankings, coming at No. 11 in the AP and No. 14 in the Coaches Poll.

The Big Ten continues to be very well represented in the polls, with Michigan State, Iowa, Ohio State, Purdue, Wisconsin and Maryland also making the top-25, along with Minnesota, Nebraska and Indiana receiving votes.
