MASON CITY – For the first time since the 2013-14 season, the NIACC women’s basketball team is ranked No. 1 in the NJCAA Division II poll.

NIACC, which was fourth in the Jan. 27 poll, moved up to the top slot Monday with wins last week over No. 1 Kirkwood (63-60) and DMACC (85-52). The Lady Trojans are 23-1 overall and 10-0 in the Iowa Community College Athletic Conference

In the 2013-14 season, NIACC spent seven weeks ranked No. 1. The Lady Trojans were ranked No. 1 in the Dec 18 and Jan. 8 polls that season, spent the last four weeks of the regular season in the top slot and placed third at the Division II national tournament.

In this week’s poll, Kirkwood, which was No. 1 last week, is ranked No. 2 and Highland CC (Kan.) is No. 3.

NIACC, which has won 11 straight games, returns to action Wednesday at Iowa Lakes in a conference contest. Game time is slated for 5:30 p.m.

CEDAR FALLS — Northern Iowa coach Ben Jacobson believes national parity this season will help the Missouri Valley when it comes to the NCAA Tournament. The Panthers are in first place in the Valley race with an 8-2 record.

Jacobson says Bradley’s near upset of Michigan State last season and Loyola’s run to the Final Four two years ago are proof that Valley teams can find success in the tournament.

Jacobson says the Panthers are focused on the present and not what it may take to get in the NCAA Tournament.

UNI travels to Valparaiso on Wednesday.

 

 

DES MOINES — Drake will be out to start a new home winning streak when the Bulldogs host Bradley on Wednesday night. The Bulldogs had their 15-game home winning streak snapped with a 79-72 loss to Southern Illinois. It was their first home loss in more than a year.

That’s Drake coach Darian DeVries who says the Bulldogs will need a better defensive effort on Wednesday after giving up 13 three pointers in the loss to the Salukis.
