logo_iowa_hawkeyesIOWA CITY – The University of Iowa men’s basketball team is ranked ninth in both the Associated Press and USA Today Coaches Poll after notching a pair of victories last week over No. 4 Michigan State on the road (76-59) and Michigan at home (82-71).

Iowa’s No. 9 ranking is its highest during the Fran McCaffery era and first since being ranked seventh on Nov. 27, 2001. McCaffery’s 2013-14 squad was ranked as high as 10th on Jan. 20, 2014.

The Hawkeyes’ 17-point triumph at Michigan State last Thursday was it largest margin of victory in East Lansing, Michigan, since 1983 and snapped an 18-game losing skid at the Breslin Center. Iowa’s win over Michigan improved its conference record to 5-0, marking the first time the Hawkeyes won their first five league games since the 1996-97 campaign.
