Randolph-Macon Men's Basketball Up To #3 Nationally

The new d3hoops.com National Division III Top 25 rankings were released Monday night, and the Randolph-Macon Yellow Jackets made a big jump. After falling last week from #4 to #6 after their first loss of the season at Mary Washington on January 8th, Randolph-Macon, with a pair of big Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) victories last week, including a 64-39 triumph over defending ODAC Tournament champion Guilford, move up three slots to #3 in the latest poll.

This is the highest ranking for the program since their last visit to the #1 spot in the rankings, which took place at the conclusion of the 2015 regular season during the Yellow Jackets' 25-game winning streak that carried them all the way to the Round of Eight in the NCAA Division III Men's Basketball Championship.

The Yellow Jackets face a stiff test Wednesday, traveling to #18 Virginia Wesleyan, who stand at 6-1 in conference play, 14-2 overall, jumping five spots from last week's poll where they were at #23. The game is set to tip off at 7pm.
