Marquette Women’s Basketball Drops Out Of The Associated Press Voting Again

That’s what happens when you lose twice in a week, y’all.

For the second time this season, Marquette women’s basketball has gone from earning votes in the Associated Press top 25 poll to not earning votes.

Last week, two voters had Marquette in their top 25. That poll came out last Monday, and that night, the Golden Eagles got clonked at home by Creighton. That was probably enough to doom their chances at points in the new poll, but Sunday afternoon’s loss to St. John’s definitely sealed MU’s fate.

Oregon State is up to #10 in the country this week, carrying with them a record of 15-1. Yes, that one loss is to Marquette. They made a six spot leap this week thanks to a win over Stanford, who was ranked #10 in the country last week. I can’t even fault the voters for not giving the Golden Eagles credit here, because MU’s losses are definitely outweighing the value of this win. Arizona State stays stationary at #19 in the country this week, while DePaul, the third MU foe in the top 25, shifted from #23 to #21 in the newest poll.

Green Bay is the only team on Marquette’s schedule that falls into the receiving votes department this week. The Phoenix picked up 14 points by appearing on six different ballots with a high placement of #20.

Marquette has three games scheduled this week, starting with a visit to Seton Hall on Tuesday. Tip off is scheduled for 6pm Central, and the game will be streamed live and free on Fox Sports Go.
