SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

The Iowa men’s basketball team (20-9, 9-7) slid four spots in the latest AP Top-25 poll after losing three-straight games in Big Ten play.

Iowa’s 83-76 over Purdue was enough for pollsters to keep Fran McCaffery’s squad in the Top-25, but the team faces the real possibility of being dropped from the rankings if it fails to beat No. 22 Michigan State in East Lansing on Thursday, something Iowa hasn’t done at the Breslin Center since the 2004-05 campaign.

In addition to Iowa and Michigan State, two other Big Ten schools appear in this week’s rankings: Wisconsin (9) and Michigan (12).
