LINCOLN, Neb. For the third straight week, the Nebraska Wesleyan men’s basketball team is the unanimous No. 1 ranked team in the D3hoops.com NCAA III Top 25 poll that was released on Dec. 10. NWU received all 25 first place votes to earn the top spot.

Williams, with a 9-0 record, is No. 2 in the poll once again this week. Augustana (Ill) is ranked 3rd, followed by Hamilton and Whitman rounding out the top five.

Nebraska Wesleyan is off to a 9-0 start to the season and the Prairie Wolves now have won 22 straight games dating back to last season’s NCAA III National Championship run.

This week NWU heads to Oregon for a pair of games against George Fox and Linfield on Dec. 16-17. Those are the final games of 2018 for Nebraska Wesleyan as they do not have games scheduled from Dec. 17-Jan. 2 when they return to American Rivers Conference play.

NWU is not at home until Jan. 5 when they host Loras College, a team that is ranked No. 20 in this week’s NCAA III Top 25 poll.
