ANCHORMEN RANKED NO. 24 IN D3HOOPS.COM'S LATEST TOP 25 POLL

Providence, R.I.The Rhode Island College men's basketball team cracked D3Hoops.com's Top 25 for the first time this season, coming in at No. 24 in the organization's latest national poll.

 

 

 

Head Coach Bob Walsh's Anchormen are currently 9-1 overall and 1-1 (fourth place tie) in the Little East Conference and have not played since Dec. 10. "We are very proud that we've established the program at a nationally-ranked level," Walsh said, "but our guys understand we will ultimately be judged by our deeds on the court, not by what others think of us. Our goal is to get better and win our next game."

 

In upcoming action, Rhode Island College will play at Wheaton on Thursday, Jan. 5 (7 p.m.).
