Coming off just its second loss of the season, the Indiana University of Pennsylvania men’s basketball team dropped two spots to No. 6 in this week’s National Association of Basketball Coaches Division II poll released Tuesday.

The Crimson Hawks fell 64-63 to Mercyhurst on Saturday and are 19-2 overall and 12-2 in Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference play. They opened the week Jan. 30 with an 85-72 victory at Seton Hill.

Northwest Missouri State (21-0) is the new No. 1 and the only undefeated team left in Division II. St. Edwards (20-1) moved up one spot to No. 2 with Bellarmine (18-1) dropping two spots to No. 3 after its first loss of the season.

South Carolina-Aiken (19-1) moved up two spots to No. 4, while West Liberty (W.Va.), at 17-2, sits right in front of IUP in the No. 5 spot.

The Crimson Hawks remain the only PSAC team in the rankings.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
