By: Jim Howell/GCU Club Sports Information Director

GCU Club Sports is proud to announce that the Grand Canyon University Club Men’s Basketball Division I (Purple) team is ranked 11th in the latest National Club Basketball Association (NCBBA) Regular Season Poll. The Lopes leaped a whopping six spots from the last poll two weeks ago, which is the largest jump by any team this week. The Lopes are in the Top 20 for the second straight time after sweeping all six of their first conference games this season: three over ASU Poly, and three over the GCU White team.

The Lopes’ conference schedule won’t pick up again until after the holidays, but the Lopes will finish out the 2017 side of their overall schedule this weekend in Chandler. They’ll square off against Chandler-Gilbert Community College tonight at 7 pm before finishing out the set tomorrow afternoon at 4 pm against Tohono O’odham Community College. Both games will be played at Chandler-Gilbert Community College.
