The Iowa State women's basketball team has ranked No. 15 in the AP Preseason Poll, their first preseason ranking since the 2013-14 season. 

According to the Iowa State announcement, this is the Cyclones' highest preseason ranking since the 2001-02 season when they checked in at No. 8.

Iowa State will return its two leading scorers from last season, junior guard Ashley Joens and senior forward Kristin Scott, who both also earned Preseason All-Big 12 Honors, Joens being a unanimous selection to the All-Big 12 First Team.

The Cyclones will begin the season at noon Nov. 25 at home against Nebraska Omaha.
