Men's basketball moves up in polls; Odenthal honored

Junior outside hitter Jill Odenthal received honorable mention All

The men's basketball team moved up in both the Associated Press and the USA Today/ESPN Coaches' polls after a 63-59 win over the Marquette Golden Eagles gave the Badgers their fourth consecutive win Saturday. Wisconsin, previously at No. 22 in the AP poll, moved up to No. 19. In the coaches' poll, the Badgers were ranked 15th, up three spots from the previous week.

UConn was No. 1 in the AP Poll and Kentucky took the top spot in the coaches' poll. Big Ten foes Illinois (21 AP/19 coaches) and Purdue (22/22) also cracked the top 25 in both polls.
