RVC men and women near top of rankings

Posted:
ROCKFORD (WREX) -
For the ninth consecutive week, Rock Valley College is ranked in the top 10 in the NJCAA Division III men's basketball poll.  After conference wins over Harper College and College of DuPage, as well a non-conference victory over UW-Sheboygan last week, the Golden Eagles come in at number 3 in this week's poll. 
 
RVC is 22-4 overall and is tied for first in the conference with Joliet Junior College with an 8-2 conference record.  NJCAA DIII has 114 men's basketball programs located throughout the United States.
 
Rock Valley College plays two pivotal games this week traveling to Triton College on Wednesday and playing at home on Saturday against Madison College.
 
RVC remains on top of the NJCAA Division III women's basketball poll, a spot they have held for over a year. The last NJCAA poll that did not see RVC on top was the January 16, 2013 poll where they slipped to #2 before reclaiming the top spot a week later. The Golden Eagles went on to win a second straight national championship that season and have remained in the top spot for the entire 2013-14 season as well.
 
The RVC women are 20-5 on the season and 10-0 in conference play.
