BELTON, Texas – The University of Mary Hardin-Baylor women’s basketball team continued to climb in both of the national polls this week. The Cru is now 12th in the country in the Top 25 and is #13 in the WBCA Top 25 Poll.

The Cru received votes worth 105 points to move up to #13 from last week’s 15th spot in the WBCA Top 25 Poll. Bowdoin is ranked #1 with five first-place votes and 197 total points. East Texas Baptist is ranked 15th by the WBCA and U.T.-Dallas is ranked 19th to give the American Southwest Conference three teams in the poll. Thomas More, a program UMHB will host in January, is ranked second in the country this week.

UMHB climbed to 12th in the Top 25 Poll with 331 points. Bowdoin is #1 with 14 first-place votes and 608 total points. ETBU is ranked 15th and U.T.-Dallas comes in at #23 this week. Thomas More is ranked #2 in that poll and upcoming UMHB opponent Austin College is ranked 25th.
