MASON CITY — The NIACC women’s basketball team remains as the top-ranked team in the country in the latest junior college Division II poll. NIACC took over the top spot on February 3rd and is now 27-1 after a 21-point win over then-2nd-ranked Kirkwood this past Saturday. Kirkwood dropped to fourth in this week’s rankings. Labette Community College of Kansas moved up to the second spot, with Macomb Community College of Michigan ranked third. Lincoln Land of Illinois rounds out the top five. The NIACC men dropped one spot to #14 in the D-II men’s poll this week after losing to 11th-ranked Kirkwood on Saturday. Milwaukee Area Tech is ranked #1 this week, followed by Sullivan County New York, Davidson County North Carolina, South Suburban of Illinois, and Des Moines Area Community College rounding out the top five. Kirkwood remains 11th this week, followed by Iowa Lakes at #12.
IOWA CITY — Iowa coach Fran McCaffery says freshman guard CJ Fredrick is questionable for tonight’s game at 24th ranked Michigan State. Fredrick missed the 18th ranked Hawkeyes’ win over Ohio State with an ankle sprain.
McCaffery says they don’t want to rush him back.
At 10-6, the Hawkeyes and Spartans are part of a four team logjam in second in the Big Ten and McCaffery says a key will be slowing down Spartan senior guard Cassius Winston.
McCaffery says Winston will put a lot of pressure on Iowa freshman point guard Joe Toussaint.
Iowa has only one win in East Lansing since 1993 and this will be another tough challenge.
AMES — Iowa State coach Steve Prohm is focusing on defense in practice as the Cyclones get set for tonight’s game at home against TCU. The Cyclones are 4-10 in the Big 12 after an 87-57 loss to Texas Tech.
The Cyclones put up little resistance in losses to the Red Raiders and Kansas.
