BOCA RATON, Fla. – Lynn University's men's basketball team held its post at No. 15 on the D2SIDA National Media Poll announced on Thursday. It is the sixth release of the poll this season and the third consecutive featuring the Fighting Knights.
The Blue and White are 9-0 on the season, marking the best start to a campaign for the program in 20 years. Last week, Lynn defeated Bluefield State, 75-63, before taking down Caldwell on a buzzer-beater, 65-63.
Lynn had not been ranked in the nation's top-25 since the 2014-15 campaign, where they were in and out of the rankings for the majority of the season before making a run to the NCAA Sweet 16.
Regionally, Lynn is third behind No. 8 Valdosta State and No. 6 Nova Southeastern.
Bellarmine continues to hold the top-spot nationally with a 9-0 record and 295 total points in the poll.
The newest National Association of Basketball Coaches National Rankings were released yesterday as well, with Lynn receiving 25 points, putting the Fighting Knights one spot outside of the Top-25 at No. 26.
