Oregon Tech men stay at No. 3 in the nation

NAIA

 

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Oregon Tech men’s basketball remained third in the latest NAIA Top 25 Coaches Poll, with the Lady Owls being voted just outside the poll released Monday. The Hustin’ Owls are 12 points ahead of No. 4 Davenport (Mich.) and behind Northwood (Fla.) and Dordt (Iowa). Monday’s are the first fresh rankings since Oregon Tech lost to then-19th ranked Warner Pacific on December 29. Warner Pac jumped to No. 7 in Monday’s poll. Southern Oregon and Eastern Oregon were voted 20 and 29 votes shy of making the top 25.

After losing for just the third time this season Saturday at Southern Oregon, the Oregon Tech Lady Owls are 12 votes short of breaking into the top 25. OIT received 73 votes – 15 more than the next closest team outside the poll – and remain behind No. 25 Indiana Southeast. Indiana Wesleyan is on the top, followed by Briar Cliff (Iowa), Davenport (Mich.), College of the Ozarks (Mo.) and Morningside (Iowa). From the Cascade Conference, Eastern Oregon is No. 11 and Corban is No. 21.

The Owls are on the road this weekend, traveling to Northwest University Friday and The Evergreen State College on Saturday in Cascade Conference play. Both women’s games will be broadcast on 960 the Sports Legend starting at 5:15 PM, while the men’s games are available on 92.5 KLAD-FM starting at 7:00 PM.
