GCU Purple moves into 17th spot in first regular season poll
GCU Club Sports is proud to announce that the Grand Canyon University Men’s Basketball Division I (Purple) team is officially ranked in the first National Club Basketball Association (NCBBA) Regular Season Poll. The Lopes reached the Top 20 for the first time this season after narrowly missing a national ranking in the preseason poll. It’s also an accomplishment in itself that the Lopes are nationally ranked in their first year of NCBBA competition. GCU is the only university in either the Mountain or Pacific time zones to earn a national ranking in this week’s poll.
The Lopes will enjoy their new national ranking over the Thanksgiving holiday as they will be off until right after the holiday. They’ll get back into action at the friendly confines of the Lopes’ Performance Center on the GCU campus on Monday and Tuesday, November 27 and 28 with a pair of intrasquad games between the GCU Purple and GCU White teams. The teams will tip off at 8 pm Monday, and then at 7:30 pm on Tuesday. Admission to the games is FREE.
The entire NCBBA Rankings are listed below:
|Rank||Team||Total Pts||Prev Rank|
