MEN’S BASKETBALL MOVES UP SEVEN SPOTS TO NO.18

Providence, RI-Rhode Island College moved up to No. 18 in the D3Hoops.com men’s basketball top-25 national poll. Head Coach Bob Walsh’s Anchormen won for the 10th straight time in an 86-72 victory over Southern Maine on Feb. 14 and notched their 14th victory over the past 15 games. RIC is currently 18-4 overall land 11-1 in the Little East Conference.

 

 

 

RIC was ranked No. 25 last week. The Anchormen can clinch at least a share of the 2009 Little East Conference Regular Season Championship with a win at Western Connecticut on Tuesday, Feb. 17. A victory over the Colonials would also secure the homecourt advantage throughout the upcoming LEC Tournament.
