Iowa didn't play over the weekend, but lost a Quadrant 1 win in the NCAA's NET formula used by the men's basketball selection committee.

Iowa State's 30-point loss to Texas Tech at home on Saturday knocked the Cyclones down to 85th in the NET, which turned Iowa's 84-68 win over the Cyclones in Ames on Dec. 12 from a Quad-1 to a Quad-2 win.

Iowa is now 7-6 in Quad-1 games and 5-1 in Quad-2 games.

One of Iowa's losses is still a Quad-2 defeat — the 93-78 loss to DePaul on Nov. 11. DePaul is at 72 in the NET, but a drop of four spots or more could drop that defeat to a Quad-3. Iowa already has one Quad-3 loss this season — the 76-70 defeat at Nebraska on Jan. 7.

Iowa is at 27 in the NET heading into this week's games at Michigan State (13 NET) and at home against Penn State (25 NET). Both are Quad-1 games.
