AP Top 25 women's basketball poll: Iowa not alone in suffering surprise upset over wild weekend

LINCOLN, Neb. — Though Iowa’s upset to unranked Nebraska drew the most attention, the Hawkeyes were one of three teams ranked in the top five of the Associated Press Top 25 to lose last week. In all, nine teams in the Top 25 lost — and yes, since Iowa was No. 2, it's now been five consecutive weeks that the second-ranked team fell.

National Player of the Year contender Caitlin Clark stressed afterward that the world wasn’t ending and it was a learning opportunity for the Hawkeyes in pursuit of their ultimate goal.
