Marquette and Badgers drop in polls

The Marquette men have dropped out of the Top 25 in the Associated Press sportswriter's poll for the first time this season.

The Golden Eagles were 17th before losing to Louisville and Notre Dame last week. Marquette is 16-6 overall and 6-5 in the Big East and they got the most votes among teams that didn't make the Top-25.

Still, it's the first time since Jan. 8 of last year the Eagles don't have an AP ranking.

They're still 25th in the USA Today coaches' poll, dropping from 16th a week ago.

Tonight (Tuesday), Marquette plays at Seton Hall.

The Pirates are 5-6 in the Big East and 15-9 overall. Marquette beat them by five at home a month ago. Seton Hall guard Paul Gause injured a knee last week and is out for the season.

Badgers drop

Meanwhile, the Wisconsin men are out of the national Top-10.

They were eighth in both polls a week ago, but after losing to Purdue Saturday, the Badgers are ranked 14th by the coaches and 15th by the media.

They're at Indiana Tuesday night.
