The Indiana University of Pennsylvania men’s basketball team remains at No. 2 in the latest National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) Division II Coaches’ Poll released Tuesday.

The Crimson Hawks recorded recent wins over Clarion and Cal U (Pa.) to improve their record to 24-2 overall and 17-2 in the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference.

IUP is one of five teams in Division II with two or fewer losses on the year.

The top eight spots in the NABC poll remain the same from a week ago. Northwest Missouri State (27-0) holds the top spot as the only undefeated team in Division II.

Nova Southeastern (23-2) trails IUP at No. 3. Rounding out the top five is West Texas A&M (27-3) at No. 4 and St. Edwards (24-2) at No. 5.

The No. 2 ranking is the highest for the Crimson Hawks this season.

IUP is the only PSAC team in the top 25. Two Atlantic Region squads join the Crimson Hawks in the poll: West Liberty (W.Va.) at No. 7 with a 22-3 record and Virginia State (24-4) at No. 15.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com 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.
