FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - Arkansas’ men’s basketball team has jumped to 18th in this week’s Associated Press rankings after winning three games last week.

Last week, the Razorbacks entered the poll, at No. 25, for the first time since 2007. They won at SMU, then took back-to-back home victories against North Texas and Iona.

Arkansas has a 6-0 record for the first time since the 1997-98 season.

The Razorbacks will travel to Iowa State for a game Thursday. The Cyclones are ranked 20th. This will mark the first time a ranked Arkansas team has played a road game against another ranked team since 2000.

Thursday’s game is part of the SEC-Big 12 Challenge.

Arkansas leads the SEC in scoring, at 90 points per game, and leads the nation with 20.7 assists per game.
