Wisconsin Hoops Ranked For First Time In Two Seasons

MADISON, Wis. – Off to its first 3-0 start since the 2014-15 season, the University of Wisconsin is back in a familiar spot.

For the first time since the end of the 2016-17 season, Wisconsin is ranked in the Associated Press college basketball poll, coming in at No.25.

The Badgers are coming off a week in which it won at Xavier, 77-68, and knocked off Houston Baptist, 96-59, Saturday night. They are one of six teams in the AP poll, joining Michigan (9), Michigan State (11), Iowa (20), Ohio State (23) and Purdue (24). Nebraska, Indiana and Maryland are the top three teams in the Receiving Votes category.

Averaging 86 points per game, Wisconsin is shooting 50 percent from the field and has four players averaging double figures.

Wisconsin will have a chance to validate its ranking this week in the Battle 4 Atlantis tournament in the Bahamas. UW plays Stanford (2-1) Wednesday afternoon, either Florida (2-1) or Oklahoma (3-0) Thursday and one more contest Friday.
