UW was joined by four other Big Ten teams, including Purdue at No. 3, Illinois at No. 13, Ohio State at No. 16 and Michigan State at No. 17. The Badgers will travel to face the Spartans on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, Marquette jumped six spots to No. 18, its highest ranking of the season. The Golden Eagles will visit No. 24 UConn on Tuesday.

Auburn continues at No. 1, while Gonzaga is No. 2, Arizona at No. 4 and Kentucky at No. 5.
