Badgers drop two spots to No. 23 in AP top-25 poll

The Wisconsin Badgers men’s basketball team fell two places from 21st to 23rd in the Associated Press’s latest Top 25 poll published Monday.

Since Wisconsin was number 21 last week, it lost 67-59 to Iowa (now number 9), beating Northwestern 68-51 on the road. The Badgers have lost their last five games against senior opponents.

Wisconsin returns to the ground on Saturday to face Illinois No. 5. The Badgers lost 75-60 to Illinois on February 6th.

Elsewhere in the poll, Gonzaga and Baylor stayed on top in a week with no change.

The top 5 from a week ago stayed the same in the poll, and no team dropped out of the AP Top 25.

Gonzaga got 60 votes in first place from a media panel on Monday and Baylor had the other four, with the Bulldogs getting one vote from the Bears.

Michigan, Ohio State and Illinois rounded out the top 5. The Buckeyes held their place despite losing to the Wolverines 92-87 on Sunday.

No. 12 Houston lost six spots after losing to Wichita State and No. 15 Virginia lost eight spots after losing to No. 11 Florida State and Duke.
