How they voted: Badgers in 2014 AP basketball poll (Week 1/preseason)

With the Wisconsin Badgers taking the court for the first time, I thought it might be a good time to debut the "how they voted" for this year’s Associated Press basketball poll.

Wisconsin came in at No. 3 in the preseason top 25. As you will see below, eight voters had the Badgers at No. 1. But as you’ll also see, not everyone had Wisconsin in the top three . . . and a couple had the Badgers in double digits.

Release the hounds.
