KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The Georgia College & State University men’s basketball team (22-5) spent its seventh-straight week in the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) Division II National Rankings, bringing in the No. 17 spot.
The Bobcats slipped three spots this week to No. 17, after falling in the Peach Belt Conference (PBC) Quarterfinals to Clayton State University in their only action of the week. Georgia College is one of just two PBC schools in the top-25, behind No. 4 Augusta State University. Arkansas Tech regains the top spot in the country at 29-1 overall.
The Bobcats have appeared in the poll a total of nine weeks this season, out of a potential 15. The nine weeks ranked is second for the school, behind only the 1999-2000 season, where Georgia College was inside the top-25 for all 12 polls that year.
Georgia College is back in action Saturday, March 13 at noon, taking on USC Aiken in the first round of the NCAA Southeast Region Tournament in Augusta, Ga.
