SPOKANE, Wash. – Whitworth University is ranked 11th in the final D3hoops.com poll of 2012-13.
The Pirates finished 26-4 for the second consecutive season and won their fourth straight outright Northwest Conference championship with a 14-2 record. Whitworth advanced to the NCAA Division III Sweet 16 for the fourth year in a row and fifth time overall before falling to eventual championship game participant Mary Hardin-Baylor.
There were many individual honors in 2012-13. Wade Gebbers was named First Team All-Region (D3hoops.com) in addition to First Team All-Northwest Conference. Dustin McConnell was also a First Team All-NWC honoree, while Colton McCargar was selected Second Team All-NWC. Taylor Farnsworth received honorable mention consideration for the All-NWC team.
Gebbers, along with fellow four-year letter-winner Mack Larkin, finish with a four-year record of 106-13 (a winning percentage of .891). No players in Whitworth history have won more games, or won a higher percentage of games, than those two players.
Going back to the 2009-10 season, Whitworth has now been ranked in the D3hoops.com top-25 for 50 consecutive polls.
