How they voted: Badgers in 2014 AP basketball poll (Week 6)

BY Dave Heller • December 16, 2014

Wisconsin remained at No. 5 in the Associated Press Top 25 and gained a few votes in the process, 16 to be exact.

However, the Badgers did this by having nine voters moved UW down in their ballot compared to last week and only six who moved UW up.

The key? Bill Knight of the El Paso Times didn't submit a ballot in Week 5. He had Wisconsin at No. 5 this week, causing a nice boost.

As mentioned, more people moved the Badgers down -- presumably more for what other teams did than Wisconsin -- and two dropped UW two spots. Both Cormac Gordon and Kevin Lyttle pushed Wisconsin from 5 to 7.

With Wisconsin off this week, I'd expect little to change in Week 7, but you never know.
