IUP women remain at No. 3 in national basketball poll

Michael Love

The Indiana University of Pennsylvania women’s basketball team remains at No. 3 in the latest Women’s Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA) Division II Top 25 Coaches’ Poll released Tuesday.

The Crimson Hawks played just once over the past week and defeated Pitt-Johnstown 57-35 to improve to 21-1 overall and 16-1 in the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference.

Drury (24-0) received all 24 first-place votes to remain at No. 1, with UC San Diego (22-0) staying at No. 2. Fort Hays State (23-1) still is at No. 4, and University of the Sciences (24-1) is at No. 5.

IUP is ranked in the top three in the nation for the 10th time out of the 14 polls released this season. The Crimson Hawks also are the only team in Division II to hold a top-five spot in every poll.

Cal (Pa.), at 20-3 overall, is the only other PSAC team in the top 25. The Vulcans are up to No. 18 this week after dominant conference victories over Gannon and Pitt-Johnstown.

TribLIVE commenting policy

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.
