We’ll start with Michigan and Villanova, the two schools that played one another this week and made the most drastic shifts in the rankings.

Michigan blew the doors off of Villanova and would also go on to beat George Washington and Providence in the span of a few days. The Wolverines are up to No. 9 as a result, and there’s a reasonable argument to be made that they should be higher.

Michigan’s defense is ridiculous. It has the top unit in the country and hasn’t allowed more than 61 points in a game; it allowed 46 to Villanova. In fact, outside of the 61-point game, no team has cracked 50 against the Wolverines this season. Remember when John Beilein was known as an offense-first coach? That may be the side of the floor he’s most passionate about, but Michigan has played outstanding defense the past two seasons. Charles Matthews is one of the best players in the country, and freshman Ignas Brazdeikis has been a revelation. The Wolverines boast plus defenders at all five positions.
