Michigan and Michigan State slipped in this week’s Associated Press Top 25 college basketball poll.

The Wolverines (20-2) dropped two spots to No. 7, while the Spartans (18-4) tumbled three spots to No. 9 in the poll. Both endured defeats last week: Michigan lost at Iowa on Friday night, and Michigan State lost at home to Indiana in overtime on Sunday night.

Tennessee remains at No. 1 for the third straight week and the top four are unchanged in The Associated Press men’s basketball poll.

The losses by Michigan and Michigan State led to a shake-up in the rest of the top 10.

The Volunteers received 48 of 64 first-place votes from a media panel in the poll released Monday. No. 2 Duke had 12 first-place votes and No. 3 Virginia four. Gonzaga and Kentucky rounded out the top 5.

No. 5 Kentucky, No. 6 Nevada and No. 8 North Carolina all moved up because of the losses.

No. 25 Cincinnati moved into the AP Top 25 for the first time this season.
