History made as 3 Iowa teams reach the A.P. poll

Posted: Updated:

It had never happened before, until this week. Iowa solidified itself as a basketball state with 3 teams reaching the A.P. top 25 for the first time ever.

Iowa State led the way after jumping 2 spots to #9, switching spots with the team they beat on Saturday. The Kansas Jayhawks fell 2 spots to number 11.

UNI, after going 2-0 in conference play this week, jumped 3 spots to number 20. The ranking is one spot short of the program's all-time highest position achieved by the 2010 squad.

Iowa, meanwhile, competed the trifecta, debuting in the A.P. poll at #25. The Hawkeyes picked up a pair of Big Ten wins, which included completing a season sweep of Ohio State on Saturday.

The state of Iowa stands as the only state in the nation with 3 currently ranked teams.
