March 04, 2019 - 5:10 pm

It was a tough week for Wisconsin's two, premier men's college basketball programs in the AP voting. The No. 16 Marquette Golden Eagles (-6) and No. 21 Wisconsin Badgers (-2) both took a hit in the national Top 25 rankings. 

Marquette lost back-to-back games for the first time this season, 67-61 at Villanova and 66-60 versus Creighton. The loses slid the Golden Eagles out of first and into second place in the Big East standings. 

Wisconsin split their two games, losing at Indiana 75-73 before rebounding with a 61-57 win over Northwestern. Unfortunately, they could not gain any ground in the conference standings.
