Madison, Wi (WSAU) The Wisconsin men's basketball team fell out of the Top-10 in both major polls, after back-to-back losses to North Carolina and Marquette. Meanwhile, the Golden Eagles are now at Number-11 in both the A-P media poll and the coaches' survey. They rose five spots in both from a week ago. That's after Marquette snapped the Badgers' 23-game home winning streak with a 61-54 victory on Saturday. Marquette improved to 7-and-0. The Badgers are now 6-and-2. They dropped five places to 14th in the A-P poll, and nine spots to Number-16 in the coaches' rankings. Wisconsin will host U-W Green Bay on Wednesday night. The Marquette men will play Washington tomorrow in the Jimmy-"V" classic in New York. U-W Green Bay rose two places to 21st in the new A-P women's basketball poll. The Phoenix are 7-and-0 on the heels of an eight-point win over Northern Iowa yesterday. Green Bay will travel to Toledo on Thursday night before taking its break for final exams. The Baylor women remain at Number-One. The Wisconsin women's basketball team will try to win two straight games for the first time in the regular season, when it hosts Saint Louis tonight. The Badgers are 3-and-5 overall. They've won two-of-their-last-three after beating Boston College at home by eight last Wednesday night at the Kohl Center. Taylor Wurtz had 19 points and six rebounds in that game, and she went 4-of-10 from three-point range. Saint Louis is 2-and-5 after falling at Murray State of Kentucky on Saturday night, 78-to-64. Courtney Webb scored 20 for the Billikens in that contest. Also tonight, the U-W Milwaukee men play at DePaul.
