The Iowa men’s basketball team’s first week as a top-10 team since 2002 saw it split a pair of games against Michigan and Northwestern, with the former playing a major role in voters’ slating the Hawkeyes five spots lower in the latest AP poll.

Iowa’s 75-67 road loss to the now No. 10 Wolverines dropped the team’s record against the AP Top 25 to 1-4 during the current campaign, with the Black and Gold’s lone victory coming against then No. 3 and currently No. 24 ranked Ohio State in Columbus on Jan. 12.

Head coach Fran McCaffery and his team will have a chance to improve that record this evening in Carver-Hawkeye, when No. 7 Michigan State comes to Iowa City, fresh off its first Big Ten loss of the season.

In addition to Michigan State and Iowa, three other Big Ten teams appear in the rankings: Michigan (10), Wisconsin (14), and Ohio State (24).
