How they voted: Badgers in 2014-15 AP basketball poll (Week 14)

BY Dave Heller • February 10, 2015

Wisconsin stayed at No. 5 in the most recent Associated Press top 25 poll and gained all of four votes.

So should be a boring week with not much movement for the Badgers in the ballots, right? Wrong.

Amazingly, 36 of the 65 voters moved Wisconsin either up or down last week.

This includes Wisconsin moving up as much as three spots, but also several votes pushed the Badgers down two slots.

The more I do these, the less I understand.

Here's this week's poll with comparisons from the last four weeks:
