Badger hoops back in the Top 25

The latest men's basketball polls were released on Monday and the Badgers have rejoined the AP top 25 rankings, checking in at No. 23. Wisconsin (10-2) has won four straight games heading into Big Ten play this Thursday against Ohio State. That begins a stretch where UW will face ranked foes in five of the next six games.

UW is one of five Big Ten teams among the top 25, joining No. 4 Purdue, No. 11 Michigan State, No. 15 Ohio State and No. 25 Northwestern.

The Badgers are receiving votes in the ESPN/Coaches poll, but check in at No. 28, just outside the rankings. Purdue (4), Michigan State (11) and Ohio State (15) are the only Big Ten teams in the ESPN top 25.

Bo Ryan's Badgers spent one other week in the AP top 25 earlier this season, when they climbed to No. 20 in the poll.
