East Lansing, MI – Michigan state basketball fell to # 17 out of # 12 in the latest Associated Press college basketball poll, released Monday afternoon

MSU (6-3, 0-3 B1G) lost to Wisconsin at the Breslin Center on Christmas Day before taking to the streets against Minnesota and Nebraska

The Spartans lost to the Golden Gophers (81:56), falling 3-0 in the league for the first time since 2001/02 (a team that won the NCAA tournament and lost to N.C. Specify immediately)

“Hard to believe where we were really poor is defensive, and I thought we did everything we wanted to do defensive tonight,” said MSU coach Tom Izzo in a video conference

Eight other Big Ten teams are in the top 25, including Wisconsin (No. 6), Iowa (No. 10), Rutgers (No. 14), Illinois (No. 15), Michigan (No. 16), Northwestern (No. 19), Minnesota (No. 21) and Ohio State (No. 25)
