    BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - The Indiana women's basketball programs was named among the top-10 of fans favorite college women's basketball teams according to The Harris Poll.

    The Hoosiers earn their first spot on the list and are tied as the eighth favorite team with Big Ten foe Wisconsin. The list includes a top-five of Tennessee, Connecticut, Iowa, Duke, Maryland and Stanford, respectively (Duke, Maryland and Stanford were tied for fourth).

    The Indiana men's basketball team was selected as the third most popular behind Duke and North Carolina.

    Harris Interactive Methodology
    The Harris Poll® was conducted online within the United States between March 11-18, 2008 among 2,513 adults (aged 18 and over), of whom 611 follow college basketball. Figures for age, sex, race/ethnicity, education, region and household income were weighted where necessary to bring them into line with their actual proportions in the population. Propensity score weighting was also used to adjust for respondents' propensity to be online.

    All sample surveys and polls, whether or not they use probability sampling, are subject to multiple sources of error which are most often not possible to quantify or estimate, including sampling error, coverage error, error associated with nonresponse, error associated with question wording and response options, and post-survey weighting and adjustments. Therefore, Harris Interactive avoids the words "margin of error" as they are misleading. All that can be calculated are different possible sampling errors with different probabilities for pure, unweighted, random samples with 100% response rates. These are only theoretical because no published polls come close to this ideal. Respondents for this survey were selected from among those who have agreed to participate in Harris Interactive surveys. The data have been weighted to reflect the composition of the adult population. Because the sample is based on those who agreed to participate in the Harris Interactive panel, no estimates of theoretical sampling error can be calculated.
