Iowa moved into the Associated Press men's basketball poll this season for the first time on Monday.
The Hawkeyes (9-3), coming off a 77-70 win over Cincinnati on Saturday night at the United Center in Chicago, got 125 points in the AP voting.
Iowa missed getting into the coaches poll — the Hawkeyes were the first team among those receiving votes, falling 16 points short.
The Hawkeyes were ranked 13 weeks last season in the AP poll, getting as high as No. 14 in the Nov. 26 poll. Their last ranking was 22nd in the Feb. 25 poll.
Iowa is off until Sunday's game against Kennesaw State at Carver-Hawkeye Arena.
