NCAA women's basketball: Watch No. 1 IUP vs. Slippery Rock on CBS Sports Digital

Indiana University of Pennsylvania Athletics

Indiana University of Pennsylvania (IUP) has only ever played one game as the No. 1 team in the nation.

This weekend, they'll make it two by visiting a Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference rival and looking not only to solidify their spot atop Division II women's basketball polls but inch closer to a school record win streak.

Ever since dropping an exhibition to the Ohio State Buckeyes in October, the Crimson Hawks have won 12 straight to remain the last undefeated team in the PSAC and one of seven undefeated Division II programs remaining in the nation, and they've absolutely dominated competition along the way. With a .475 team field-goal percentage and four different players averaging at least 25 points per game, including senior guards Lauren Wolosik (28.9) and Carolyn Appleby (27.7), IUP has outscored opposing teams by an average of 32.6 points per game.

Among the team's most notable blowouts: A 95-50 win over Alderson Broadus, a 73-46 win over Bloomsburg, a 100-44 win over Cheyney, an 87-52 win over Millersville and a 73-45 win over the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown.

With two more victories, the Crimson Hawks would tie an all-time record for consecutive wins -- a 16-game streak accomplished in 1999-2000. Their next opportunity to keep their current streak alive comes in enemy territory, however, as Slippery Rock hosts IUP on Saturday.

The Rock are just 6-7 on the season coming off a three-game losing streak, but they're also noted IUP rivals. They've been streaky throughout the year, reeling off four straight wins before their current slide, and boast above-.500 marks in both conference play and home games. Saturday, they'll have their chance to re-enter the PSAC picture -- and dethrone a conference heavyweight in the process.
