The Week 12 Associated Press college basketball poll has been released, and everyone should now take some time to welcome the Iowa Hawkeyes in to the top 10 following their recent, impressive stretch of basketball they’ve been playing.

Iowa started off the week on the highest of notes as they disposed of the former top five Ohio State Buckeyes, and then they followed that up with a win over the Minnesota Golden Gophers on Sunday, a win in which they played some of the best second-half basketball that anyone has played all season thus far.

While this week’s coup is a jump, their counterparts in the state, the Iowa State Cyclones, didn’t have the same the same success this past week and dropped out of the top 10.

Here’s a look at the entire AP rankings for Week 12 of the college basketball season.
