Iowa women’s basketball opened as the No. 3 team in the country in the AP Preseason top 25, which was released Tuesday afternoon.

The Hawkeyes come in behind only LSU – the defending national champs – and UConn. Four other B1G teams cracked the top 25 as well, including Ohio State at No. 7, Indiana at No. 9, Maryland at No. 14 and Illinois at No. 23.

The hype surrounding Iowa women’s basketball may be at an all-time high. The Hawkeyes played in front of a record crowd at Kinnick Stadium  Sunday afternoon, and star guard Caitlin Clark is back for another run at a national title.

It’s a good time to be a Hawkeye.
