Published On: Feb 11 2013 04:20:23 PM CST


After overtime wins against Iowa and Michigan last week, the Wisconsin men's basketball team returned to the national rankings for the first time since the second week of the season.

The Badgers are 20th in the Associated Press poll and 19th in the coaches' poll.

Wisconsin is now 8-3 in the Big Ten, just a game out of first place. The Badgers travel to Minnesota to face the Gophers Thursday night.

There's disagreement for the #1 spot in the men's basketball poll. Indiana is the top choice by the Associated Press while Duke is number one according to the Coaches' poll.
