POLL NOTES: Indiana’s men moved 18 spots up the poll to No. 7 this week, their highest ranking since November 2, 2004, when they were 10th. Indiana topped six other national top 30 squads, including then-No. 6 Wisconsin, at the Badgers’ adidas Invitational last weekend.

Princeton’s men moved up to No. 12 after placing third at last weekend’s Wisconsin adidas Invitational. The ranking is the highest by an Ivy League school since Princeton was No. 14 on November 18, 1997.

The women of Stony Brook debuts on the poll for the first time this season at No. 12 and tying their previous all-time high set on October 14, 2008. Tulsa’s women at No. 21 makes their first appearance in the poll since at least 1995.
