Corban Ranked for First Time Since 2005-06 SeasonSalem-News.com Sports
(KANSAS CITY, Mo.) - Despite suffering its first loss of the season this past weekend, Corban's men's basketball team earned its first national ranking since October 26, 2005 when the latest National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) Division II coaches' poll was released Monday by the national office.
The Warriors, who are currently 7-1 overall and sit second in the Cascade Collegiate Conference standings, were one of five CCC schools to be ranked in the Top 40 nationally. League-leading Eastern Oregon is the highest ranked conference school at No. 9 following by Northwest (No. 16), Oregon Tech (No. 19), Warner Pacific (No. 33), and Corban (No. 39).
The national office has released 55 polls since Corban was last ranked, as the Warriors were 43rd in the country according to the 2005-06 preseason poll.
So far this season, Corban is averaging 89.4 points per game and is outscoring its opponents by 7.4 points per contest. The Warriors began the season on a six-game winning streak before falling in the opener of Capital City Classic to cross town rival Willamette last Friday. Twenty-four hours later, Corban rebounded with its highest point total of the season in a 112-93 victory over Pacifica College to take third place in the holiday tournament.
Corban will take its best eight-game record since the program's record-breaking start to the 2004-05 season on the road this Friday, December 4th, for its Cascade Collegiate Conference opener against rival Northwest Christian beginning at 5:30 p.m. inside the Morse Event Center in Eugene.
