IOWA CITY, Iowa — The University of Iowa men’s basketball team continued its ascent up the weekly rankings. After winning Sunday’s game against Minnesota (94-73), their third straight victory since Jan. 9, the Hawkeyes climbed to 10th in both the Associated Press (AP) and USA Today Coaches polls released Monday afternoon.
