SPOKANE, Wash. – After spending five weeks as an “others receiving votes”, the Whitworth University women’s basketball team entered the D3hoops.com Top 25 poll following Saturday’s 72-68 upset of George Fox, who was ranked seventh at the time.
The Pirates are ranked 25th in today’s edition of the poll. The last time the Whitworth women’s basketball team was ranked in a D3hoops.com poll was at the end of the 2004-2005 season when the Pirates concluded the season with the 24th rank.
Whitworth is currently on a seven game winning streak and has won eight of the last nine games to improve to 18-5 overall and 12-2 in the Northwest Conference. With Saturday’s win, the Pirates jumped George Fox in the NWC standings and currently sit second in the team standings.
Whitworth will put its freshly-minted ranking to the test tomorrow evening, as the Pirates host second-ranked Whitman College in Whitworth’s Play 4Kay game.
