Indiana women claim highest ever ranking in Associated Press top-25 at No. 11

Indiana women’s basketball moved up three spots in the Week 14 Associated Press Top 25 to No. 11 and its highest ever ranking among both national polls on Monday.

The Hoosiers previously checked in at No. 12 in the 2019-20 season in three separate weeks in its highest ranking among the media poll prior to Monday’s release. This is the 34th consecutive week IU has been ranked in the Associated Press Top 25.

In the other national poll – the USA Today/WBCA coaches poll – IU is currently ranked No. 12, also program-high. Updated rankings for the coaches poll come out on Tuesday.

Joining IU in the AP top-25 from the Big Ten are Maryland (No. 8), Michigan (No. 12), Ohio State (No. 15) and Rutgers (No. 25).

Indiana (14-4, 12-2) is coming off a 70-65 win over then No. 11 Michigan at home on Thursday night. Senior guard Ali Patberg led the way with 21 points and junior guard Grace Berger (16 points) and junior forward Aleksa Gulbe (13 points) each added double figures.  They will next take on Wisconsin in Madison on Wednesday night.
