The Ashland University women’s basketball team has produced title waves in the Division II women’s basketball sphere. The Eagles, who are coming off of a 6-0 nonconference record, look to continue their regular season success as conference play begins on Dec. 1.

The Eagles were previously ranked as the No. 3 team in the country, but after downing the No. 7 ranked Drury Panthers in overtime, 68-67, the country has taken notice and knocked them up one notch.

The current Top 10 rankings are as followed:

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

The Eagles are currently one of 26 teams left undefeated in Division II women’s basketball. They are also nine Top 25 rankings away from 150 total rankings in program history.

They look to take on the Findlay Oilers to start conference play at 5:30 pm on Thursday, Dec. 1.
