SHERMAN, Texas - After opening the year with an 11-0 record, the Austin College women's basketball team has entered the D3Hoops.com Top 25 with a ranking of No. 18 in the nation. This is the second year in a row that 'Roos have earned a Top 25 ranking from D3Hoops.
The 'Roos reached as high as No. 19 last year, making their No. 18 ranking the highest the team has achieved in the D3Hoops.com poll since its inception. Their latest appearance in the poll comes after topping Mary Hardin-Baylor, formerly the No. 5-ranked team in the nation, last Monday and adding a pair of Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference wins over Colorado College and Johnson & Wales over this past weekend. Austin College is one of two SCAC teams ranked, along with Trinity University, who the 'Roos host on Saturday evening. The Tigers are currently ranked No. 21 in the nation in the D3Hoops poll.
