Colorado Springs, CO – February 5, 2013 — Arizona Western College is proud to announce that the Matador Men’s Basketball team is ranked 20th in the latest NJCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Poll released earlier today. It’s the second straight week that the Matadors have appeared after ending a two-year absence from the national poll last week. It’s a jump of three spots this week for the Matadors, who hold a nine-game winning streak after Saturday’s 74-59 victory at Community College.
The Matadors are one of 3 ACCAC Men’s Basketball teams ranked in the polls this week (Central Arizona is 16th & Cochise is 22nd).
The Matadors return home tomorrow night to host Eastern Arizona College in an ACCAC Men’s-Women’s Basketball doubleheader beginning at 5:30PM at ‘The House’ on the AWC campus.
