CMU women remain No. 4

Despite the No. 1 team in the nation losing last week, the Colorado Mesa University women’s basketball team remained No. 4 today in the USA Today/WBCA national rankings.

Ashland (Ohio) University, which was a unanimous No. 1 last week, has its regular-season winning streak snapped at 49 games in a 66-51 loss to Findlay (Ohio) on Thursday, dropping the Eagles to No. 3 in the nation behind Bentley (Mass.) and Clayton State (Ga.), the last two undefeated teams in Division II women’s basketball. Bentley is 23-0, Clayton State 24-0.

The Mavericks (22-1) are still the only RMAC team in the rankings and should be the No. 1 team Wednesday when the South Central Region rankings are released. Abilene Christian and Tarleton State of the Lone Star Conference and Texas-Permian Basin of the Heartland are receiving votes in the national rankings. No other RMAC team is mentioned in this week’s national poll.

Colorado Mesa, which has a two-game lead on Metro State with three games remaining in the regular season, could clinch a tie for the conference title Saturday night at Western State.
