IOWA CITY, Iowa - The Iowa Hawkeyes are making their first appearance in the Associated Press women's basketball rankings since Feb. 28, 2011.

Iowa (16-5) is ranked 24th after defeating Wisconsin and Michigan in the past week.

Iowa State (14-4) is No. 23.

Senior guard Jaime Printy has been named Big Ten Player of Week for her efforts. The announcement was made Tuesday by the conference office.

Printy averaged 21.5 points, 6.5 rebounds, shot 54.5 percent from the field, 41.7 percent from 3-point range and was 14-of-15 from the free throw line in Iowa’s two wins.

This marks the second time in Printy’s career she has been named Big Ten Player of the Week and her sixth Big Ten honor (four-time Big Ten Freshman of the Week in 2009-10).

Iowa returns to action on Thursday at Illinois. Tip-off is scheduled for 7 p.m. in Assembly Hall.
