Hot UT Dallas Basketball Teams Still Climbing in National Division III Top 25 Polls
by Bruce Unrue

(01.26.09) - With just a month left in the season, the UT Dallas men's and women's basketball teams continue to draw national attention in their respective Division III Top 25 polls.

The UT Dallas women, 15-2 overall and undefeated in the American Southwest Conference, jumped four spots from No. 22 last week to No. 18 nationally in the weekly poll, release Monday evening. UT Dallas is the only American Southwest Conference team in the Top 25, though East Division rival Mississippi College and West Division leader McMurry are receiving votes.

For the first time this season, the UT Dallas women have also cracked the USA Today/ESPN Division III National Coaches Poll. The Comets are ranked 23rd in that poll.

In the men's poll, the UT Dallas men dropped two positions from No. 20 to No. 22 after last week's narrow loss to the University of the Ozarks. There are not other ASC teams receiving votes in the men's poll.

The Top 25 is voted on by a panel of 25 coaches, Sports Information Directors and media members from across the country, and is published weekly on Monday nights throughout the basketball season.
