Bellarmine remains #2 in the nation

Knights remain No. 2 in NABC and media polls

3/3/2015 | Men's Basketball

LOUISVILLE, Ky.--The Bellarmine University men's basketball team remained No. 2 in both the NABC Division II and the Division II Media poll released on Tuesday afternoon. There was very little movement in the top 10 as only Barry suffered a loss during the last week.

Florida Southern, who improved to 27-1 last week, stays atop both polls. Fellow GLVC members Wisconsin-Parkside and Indianapolis are also among the nation's top 15 with the Rangers ranking eighth in both polls while the Greyhounds come at 13th (NABC) and 14th (Media). The only other Midwest Region team making the top 25 was Lake Superior State, who came in at No. 22 in both polls.

The weekly coaches poll is being conducted by 16 members of the NABC, two representing each of the eight NCAA Division II regions.

All records are through games of Sunday, March 1, 2015. The final poll will be released Tuesday, March 10.
