Iowa, Iowa State, and UNI Men’s Basketball Teams Make History
Iowa, Iowa State, and UNI are all ranked in the new Associated Press men's basketball rankings. It's the first time it's ever happened.
The Iowa men are ranked #25 in the new poll that came out earlier this afternoon. Iowa knocked off Ohio State 76-67 at Carver-Hawkeye Arena on Saturday behind an incredible second half performance by Aaron White, who had 18 of his 22 points in the final 20 minutes. The Hawks play at #6 Wisconsin Tuesday night. Tip-off at 8:05 on ESPN.
The Northern Iowa Panthers go from 23 to 20 in this week's poll, following a 60-46 victory Sunday afternoon over Missouri State. Seth Tuttle had 22 to lead UNI. Up next for the Panthers is Indiana State, Wednesday night at 7, at the McLeod Center. The game is on Fox Sports Midwest.
The Iowa State Cyclones moved from 11th to 9th in the new poll, after an 86-81 win over Kansas Saturday night. The game was played in front of an even more raucous crowd than normal at Hilton Coliseum, and that's saying something. Naz Long led the Cyclones with 20 points. Iowa State hosts Kansas State, first place in the Big 12, tomorrow night at 6 on ESPN 2.
