CMU women back to No. 4
Colorado Mesa’s convincing victories last weekend against Black Hills State and Chadron State, coupled with three teams losing last week, vaulted the Mavericks back to No. 4 in the USA Today/WBCA Division II women’s basketball rankings.
Western Washington, the University of South Carolina-Aiken and Gannon (Pa.) University all lost last week, dropping them from the 4-5-6 spots to 9, 12 and 10, respectively. Three undefeated teams, Ashland (Ohio), Bentley (Mass.) and Clayton State (Ga.) still hold down the top three spots.
At 20-1, the Mavericks have the next-best record in the nation. New York Institute of Technology is 19-1 and ranked No. 19. All other teams have at least two losses. The Mavericks have clinched a spot in the RMAC tournament with five games to play. They have a two-game lead over Metro State and CU-Colorado Springs for the conference title.
