Lenoir-Rhyne Women’s Basketball Ranked 20th in D2 Poll

The Lenoir-Rhyne Women’s Basketball Team was ranked No 20 in this week’s Women Basketball Division II Media Poll, sponsored by D2SIDA. It was the first time the Bears have been ranked since coming in No 25 in the last regular season poll during the 2013-14 season.

The Bears are off to the program’s best start in 43 years with a 7-0 record to start the 2022-23 season. LR won their 7th in a row with a 77-76 win Monday night at Francis Marion. The Bears are also 2-0 against ranked teams this year as the Bears defeated No. 10 Lander 71-52 then opened South Atlantic Conference play with a 85-81 overtime victory over No. 21 Wingate.

LR will return to the court as a ranked time for the first time in eight years on Saturday as the Bears travel to Young Harris for a 2pm tip-off.
