A big week for the University of Wisconsin men’s basketball team.

The Badgers (14-2), on a six-game win streak, jumped five spots in the AP Top 25 rankings to No. 8 in the country.

Wisconsin plays a trap game Tuesday at Northwestern (9-6) with eyes on a Friday matchup with 14th-ranked Michigan State (14-3) at the Kohl Center.

La Crosse native Johnny Davis heads into Tuesday’s matchup in a bit of a slump.
