College basketball rankings: Wisconsin falls 5 spots in AP Top 25, USA TODAY Coaches Polls

Michael Hickey

The Badgers are out of the top 10 after splitting their two games last week.

After falling on the road to Minnesota but recovering with a win at Purdue, Wisconsin dropped several spots in the latest college basketball polls released Monday. In the AP Top 25, the Badgers fell five spots to No. 14; in the USA TODAY Coaches Poll, they also dropped five spots, to No. 13.

As for other Big Ten teams in the polls, Michigan State remains the pride of the conference at No. 7 in the AP and No. 6 in the coaches poll, despite dropping in both after losing to Michigan. The Wolverines are No. 10 in the AP, an 11-spot climb, and No. 14 in the coaches, also an 11-spot jump. Iowa (15/13) and Ohio State (24/23) round out the conference.

Wisconsin has a chance to build another win streak with home games against Northwestern and Ohio State on tap for Wednesday and Saturday, respectively.
