The newest rankings are out and the UW Badger Basketball team is number 11 in the AP and number 13 in the coaches poll. In the coaches poll Purdue is 6th, Michigan State is 10 and Ohio State is 16th, in the AP Purdue is 6th, Michigan State is 10th and Ohio State is all the way up to 13th. Illinois also received 16 votes in the AP poll after they knocked of the Spartans at home. This is right about where you would expect the Badgers to be and besides Tennessee you can't complain to much about the teams ahead of them. Tennessee did beat number 1 Kansas at home, however besides that they don't have any impressive wins and a bad loss to Georgia. The rankings don't matter anyways at this point the Badgers just need to keep on winning starting with Illinois tomorrow.
In other polls Jeff Goodman has the Badgers up to #10 on Fox Sports, Purdue 5,OSU 11,MSU 12 and Garry Parrish at CBS has the Badgers at 9 after being 18th last week. Mr. Parrish must have actually watched a Badger game last week, he also has Purdue 5,OSU 11,MSU 12. You sort of have to wonder if one of these two guys might be cheating off the other with the striking similarities for their Big Ten placements in the rankings.
