Yellow Jackets to #2 Nationally

With a 72-50 win Saturday over Washington and Lee, Randolph-Macon moved to 22-1 on the season. Thanks to the results of two other Saturday affairs, the Yellow Jackets are in prime position both in the Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) and nationally.

Emory and Henry's stunning defeat of Virginia Wesleyan in double overtime gave Randolph-Macon, 14-0 in ODAC, their fourth consecutive regular season championship. #4 St. Thomas knocked off #2 St. John's in Minnesota on Saturday, paving the way for the Yellow Jackets to move up from #3 to #2 in the latest Top 25 released Monday afternoon.

Randolph-Macon earned two first place votes behind #1 Swarthmore, who has held the top spot the entire season and is the lone unbeaten left in Division III. The Yellow Jackets host Hampden-Sydney at Crenshaw Gymnasium on Wednesday night at 7pm.
