The Ashland University women’s basketball team has continued its success from its 2021-2022 campaign while upholding its national ranking.

The Eagles, who finished last season as the No. 9 team in the country, started off their preseason ranking with a No. 5 recognition. That recognition would sprout into a No. 3 ranking after a 4-0 start.

The Top 10 WBCA Rankings are below:

  1. Grand Valley State (4-0)
  2. West Texas A&M (5-0)
  3. Ashland (4-0)
  4. Glenville State (3-0)
  5. Eckerd (3-0)
  6. Union, TN (2-0)
  7. Drury (3-0)
  8. Georgia Southwestern (3-0)
  9. Bentley (3-0)
  10. Missouri Southern State (5-0)

Since being placed at No. 3 in the nation, the Eagles have won two more contests. In their fifth contest, they took on Truman State, downing them 96-88 with forward Annie Roshak dropping in 21 points and hauling in nine rebounds. The sixth contest of the season came against the No. 7 ranked Drury Panthers where the Eagles squeaked out a 68-67 win in overtime.

With the No. 3 ranking, the Eagles sit as the only Great Midwest Athletic Conference team in the Top 25 WBCA Ranking.

They now look to take on the Findlay Oilers with tipoff set for 5:30 pm on Dec. 1 in the conference season opener.
