December 5, 2017

GCU Purple stays put for 2nd straight regular season poll

By: Jim Howell/GCU Club Sports Information Director

GCU Club Sports is proud to announce that for the second straight week, the Grand Canyon University Club Men’s Basketball (Purple) team is ranked 17th in the latest National Club Basketball Association (NCBBA) Regular Season Poll.  The Lopes reached the Top 20 for the first time this season two weeks ago, and are one of 5 teams among the top 20 to keep their same ranking this week.  In their first year of NCBBA competition, GCU remains the only university in either the Mountain or Pacific time zones to earn a national ranking in this week’s poll.

After running their record to a perfect 3-0 with wins over the GCU White team (also an NCBBA conference squad), GCU Purple will spend the rest of their time before the semester break in non-conference play.  Their final two games of the calendar year happen December 15th and 16th when they face off against Chandler-Gilbert Community College and Tohono O’odham Community College on back-to-back nights in Chandler.
