Drake University Athletics issued the following announcement on Feb. 18.
The Drake University women's basketball team is ranked for the first time since early December after Monday's Associated Press' women's college basketball poll was announced. Drake, which is 19-5 overall and tied for first place in the Missouri Valley Conference at 11-1, is No. 24 in the latest AP Top 25 poll.
The Bulldogs received votes every week since they fell out of the top 25 Dec. 10. Earlier this season on Nov. 26, Drake, which received preseason votes, entered the poll at No. 24. It was the earliest Drake has been ranked in a season since the 2001-02 team ranked No. 24 in the Dec. 10, 2001 poll.
Drake hosts Evansville Feb. 22 at 6 p.m. in the program's annual Pink Game presented by Mercy One.
