The Wildcats are down from receiving five last week.

NCAA Basketball: Northwestern at Michigan State Mike Carter-USA TODAY Sports

Northwestern is down to just two votes received in the most recent AP Poll after splitting road games against Penn State and Michigan State last week.

The first poll of 2017 features just three Big Ten teams. Wisconsin is at No. 13, Purdue is No. 20 and Indiana fell all the way to No. 24 after two losses.

Minnesota, Northwestern’s next opponent (Jan. 5), received 56 votes, most among the “Others Receiving Votes” group. Maryland received six votes.
