LSU Eunice Basketball Cracks Top Ten in Polls
The Louisiana State University Eunice Lady Bengal Basketball team jumped three places to the number ten spot in the latest NJCAA Division II Basketball's Top 20 National Poll.
The Lady Bengals started the season ranked 23rd in the pre-season poll, but quickly climbed to 13th after starting the season 4-1 against Division I opponents. The girls stayed at 13th for 3 weeks before cracking the top ten this week.
LSU Eunice currently has a 7-1 record.
The team will face tough competition in a series of road trips through Florida over the holidays. The Lady Bengal squad will have to face off with the top ranked team in Division I at the Pensacola State College Tournament. They also face off with the 18th ranked Northwest Florida Raiders and then head down to Palm Beach to face the 21st ranked Shelton State Bucs.
LSU Eunice returns home for action on December 31 against Mineral College in the LSU Eunice New Years Classic.
Johnson County Community College, Kankakee Community College and Des Moines Area Community College are the top three teams in the Division II National Poll.
