Iowa State Women Jump to Number 13 in the A.P. Poll

Posted:

 

(Ames)(KWWL) The Iowa State women's basketball team moved up seven spots to rank 13th in this week's Associated Press Top 25, which was released Monday afternoon. The ranking is ISU's highest in the AP Poll since finishing the 2001-02 season ranked 10th.
 
During the 2001-02 campaign, Iowa State never dropped below No. 16 and spent most of the season ranked in the AP Top 10.
 
The Cyclones ranked 17th in last week's ESPN/USA Today Coaches' Top 25, which was their highest regular-season ranking in that poll since moving as high as No. 14 during the 2004-05 slate. This week's coaches' poll will be released on Tuesday.
 
Iowa State will face No. 3 Nebraska at 7 p.m. Wednesday in Lincoln, Neb. ISU's last meeting with a team ranked in the top three came last season in its loss to No. 2  Stanford in the NCAA Elite Eight. The Cyclones' last win over a team in the AP top three came during the 2003-04 campaign against No. 2 Texas Tech.
