Hawkeyes fall in latest Associated Press poll

[ 0 ] January 27, 2014 |

After a 75-67 loss to Michigan last week, the Iowa Hawkeyes dropped to No. 15 in the latest AP men’s basketball rankings. The Hawks were previously ranked No. 10. Iowa State, which knocked off Kansas State 81-75 to snap a three-game losing streak, held the No. 16 position.

Arizona and Syracuse are 1-2 in The Associated Press college basketball poll for the eighth consecutive week.

The Wildcats (20-0) are again a runaway No. 1, receiving 63 first-place votes Monday from the 65-member national media panel. The Orange (19-0) got the other No. 1 votes.

Florida jumped from sixth to third while Wichita State (21-0), the other undefeated Division I team, moved up one spot to fourth.

San Diego State and Kansas both moved up two places to fifth and sixth. They were followed by Michigan State, which dropped from third, Oklahoma State, Villanova and Michigan. The Wolverines jumped from 21st to 10th after beating Michigan State.

The Hawkeyes stand ready to face the injured but tough 7th-ranked Michigan State team in Iowa City Tuesday night. The Cyclones will face No. 6 ranked Kansas on Wednesday.

No. 20 Creighton moved back into the rankings after being out for one week. No. 25 Texas moves into the poll for the first time since 2010-11. The Longhorns have beaten three straight ranked opponents for the first time in school history.
