The University of Wisconsin men’s basketball team moved up one spot to No. 15 in the latest Associated Press Top 25 poll.

The Badgers (10-2) played one game last week, beating Grambling State 84-53 at the Kohl Center over the weekend. UW is off until Saturday, when it wraps up non-conference play with a game at Western Kentucky (6-6).

UW is one of six Big Ten teams who are ranked. The others are: No. 2 Michigan, No. 8 Michigan State, No. 13 Ohio State, No. 23 Indiana and No. 24 Iowa.

A pair of teams the Badgers beat during non-conference play — No. 21 North Carolina State and No. 25 Oklahoma — moved into the poll this week.
