UDC Women’s Basketball Team Ranked No. 4 in the 2nd NCAA East Region Poll

INDIANAPOLIS – The University of the District of Columbia is once again ranked No. 4 in the 2nd NCAA East Region Poll released late Wednesdayafternoon.
The Firebirds are 23-3 overall (16-2 East Coast Conference), and they are also ranked T-22nd in the USA Today/WBCA Division II Poll and No. 4 in the D2SIDA East Region Poll. UDC won its 11th and 12th straight games last week and have already clinched at least a share of the ECC Regular Season Championship.
Sixteen of UDC's 23 wins have come by double-figures, and the Firebirds are 7-1 outside of conference play and 12-1 on the road this season. UDC also boasts a win over a top-25 ranked team as they dominated then-No. 25 Virginia St., 88-62 back on November 19th.
Meanwhile, New Haven (22-3) jumped two spots from the first poll to top this week’s poll after winning its only game last week, 66-60 at American International. The Chargers, who boast a 72-71 victory over Stonehill on January 24th, are one spot ahead of UDC in the USA Today national poll at No. 21. They have, however, since lost to the No. 10 ranked team in the nation (3rd ranked in the region), Adelphi last night after the voting was in for all of this week’s women’s basketball polls.
Coming in at No. 2 for the second straight week is Stonehill. The Skyhawks (21-3) fell on the road at Franklin Pierce (No. 5 in the region), 81-71 on Wednesday night, but bounced back to beat Bentley on Saturday at home, 85-71. Stonehill, who boasts an 86-72 win over Adelphi on January 7th,  is T-12th in the USA Today national poll. The Skyhawks have since won their regular season finale, 64-56 over Saint Anselm last night to improve to 22-3.
Adelphi dropped from No. 2 in last week’s poll to No. 3 despite two wins last week at home over College of Saint Rose (69-56) and in overtime on the road at Pace, 82-72. The Panthers are 24-3 overall and are ranked No. 10 in the nation. After the poll was voted on, they defeated New Haven, 76-73 last night.
Two other ECC teams join UDC in this week’s poll, including Queens at No. 5 and Roberts Wesleyan at No. 10.
