Badgers Move Up In The Polls

LEARFIELD-WSAU) The Wisconsin men's basketball team has crawled its way back into the national Top-15.  The Badgers are 14th in the both the A-P media poll and the U-S-A Today coaches' survey.  

The media raised Wisconsin two spots from last week, while the coaches put them four places higher.  The Badgers are now the highest-ranked Big Ten team in both polls after plunging from the Number-three spot earlier this season when they lost five-of-six.

 Wisconsin is 9-and-5 in the conference, two games behind front-running Michigan.  The Badgers are also 22-and-5 overall, as they get ready to host Indiana tonight.

 Meanwhile, U-W Green Bay received enough votes to be seven spots out of the men's Top-25 in the A-P poll, and 12 spots away in the coaches' poll.  That's after the Phoenix won five-of-its-last-six to win the Horizon League regular season title.

 In the R-P-I Rankings, Wisconsin moved up one place to fifth.  Green Bay is 63rd, Marquette Number-72, and U-W Milwaukee tied for 157th.
