UTC has 744 points in this week’s poll, holding steady at second while Bowling Green (21-3) received one first place vote and moved up one spot to third. James Madison (21-4), moved up one spot as well to occupy fourth while Wichita State’s 20-game win streak was snapped on Sunday by Northern Iowa dropping the Shockers to 21-3 overall and fifth in the poll.

Albany, 23-3 on the year with 603 points, received the remaining first place vote. Iona (22-3) is seventh, BYU moved up four spots to eighth while Hampton (21-4) climbed to spots to ninth and Marist (20-6) remained 10th in the weekly poll.
