IUP women’s basketball moves up one spot in national poll

Michael Love

The Indiana University of Pennsylvania women’s basketball team moved up one spot to No. 4 in the latest Women’s Basketball Coaches Association Division II Top 25 Coaches Poll released Tuesday.

IUP remains the only Division II team to be ranked in the top five of every national coaches poll this season.

The Crimson Hawks won twice last week to improve to 18-1 overall and 13-1 in the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference. They regained first place in the PSAC West standings with a one-game lead over Cal (Pa.).

Drury (21-0) retained the top spot with its undefeated record, grabbing all 24 first-place votes. UC San Diego (18-0) stayed at No. 2, with Thomas Jefferson (20-0) moving up to No. 3. Fort Hays State (19-1) rounds out the top five.

Cal (Pa.), at 18-2, is the only other PSAC team in the rankings. The Vulcans fell seven spots to No. 17 this week after their 72-61 loss to Slippery Rock on Saturday.

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.
