Last updated on Tuesday, December 13, 2011

(UNDATED) - The Indiana Hoosiers are ranked for the first time since the 2007-2008 season.

IU is number 20 in this week's ESPN/USA Today coaches poll following their 73-72 victory over then-number-one Kentucky Saturday at Assembly Hall in Bloomington.

The Wildcats dropped to number three in this week's poll behind Syracuse and Ohio State.

Hoosiers forward Christian Watford was named the Big Ten's Co-Player of the Week, sharing the honor with Michigan State's Draymond Green.

Watford scored 20 points in the win over Kentucky including the three-pointer at the buzzer that gave IU the victory.

The IPFW Mastodons host Dartmouth tonight at the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum.

The Dons enter tonight's contest riding a three-game winning streak.

They are 5-3 on the season.

The Big Green are 2-6 and have lost three straight, including a 65-47 setback to Notre Dame Saturday in South Bend.

It will be the first meeting between IPFW and Dartmouth in men's basketball.
