WALLA WALLA — Whitman College’s undefeated women’s basketball team is the new No. 1 team in the D3hoops.com Top 25 poll following completion of its 25-0 regular season.
The Missionaries move to the top of the poll with 12 first-place votes, up from second last week. They are followed by another pair of 25-0 teams in Hope and Thomas More.
Former No. 1 DePauw dropped to No. 4 after its first loss of the season to Ohio Wesleyan.
The D3hoops.com Top 25 is determined by a vote of 25 coaches, sports information directors and media members from around the country.
Whitman’s women host Puget Sound at 6 p.m. Thursday in a Northwest Conference semifinal.
The Missionary men also host the Loggers in an NWC semifinal at 8 p.m. Thursday at Sherwood Center.
