Badger men move to No. 4

The University of Wisconsin men's basketball team is now fourth in both major polls.

The Badgers held steady in the new AP media survey released on Christmas Day and they moved up one spot to No. 4 in the coaches' poll from ESPN and USA Today.

The Badgers are 12-1 overall, after trouncing Pacific by 36 over the weekend. They'll host Gardner-Webb Wednesday night.

The Marquette men moved up one place to 20th in the AP poll, but the coaches dropped them one spot to 22nd.

The Golden Eagles are 12-2, after a 20-point rout of Morgan State Friday night. Marquette does not play until Saturday when it hosts Savannah State.

On the women's side, Marquette rose one spot to 21 in the AP survey. The Eagles are 11-1 after a rout of Manhattan last week.

Their next game is on Friday at home against Navy. Marquette was 23rd in last week's coaches' poll. A new one has not been released yet.
