Blue Hens, Wesley earn national basketball rankings
Delaware now has two nationally ranked basketball programs as the Blue Hens women's team and Wesley's men's team both were listed in national polls Monday.
The Blue Hens made it ten wins in a row when they defeated Drexel 65-56 in a battle of CAA unbeatens Sunday afternoon. Delaware started the season at No. 11, but quickly dropped out with a 1-2 start that was hindered by Elena Delle Donne's absence due to her on-going battle with Lyme Disease symptoms.
Wesley's d3hoops.com No. 24 ranking is its first in program history. The Wolverines have won 11 straight and 13 of 14, and will immediately face a top-15 challenge when they travel to No. 14 St. Mary's Wednesday afternoon. Wesley defeated St. Mary's 68-54 earlier this month.
