The University of Scranton men’s basketball team isn’t likely to fly under the radar this year.

Today, the Royals were selected 21st in D3hoops.com’s preseason top-25 poll, coming less than two weeks after being picked seventh in a top-25 poll sponsored by DIII News.

Wisconsin-Whitewater earned the top spot in D3hoops.com’s poll with 18 first-place votes and 614 points overall, followed by Amherst, Augustana (6 first-place votes), Illinois Wesleyan (1 first-place vote), and Williams.  Rounding out the top 10 are Calvin, Wisconsin-Stevens Point, Albertus Magnus, Washington (Mo.), and Wooster (Ohio).

The Royals will play one team currently ranked in D3hoops.com’s poll when they host 20th-ranked Cabrini College on Tuesday, November 25, at 7:00 p.m. in the Long Center.

The D3hoops.com Top 25 poll is voted on by a panel of 25 head coaches, sports information directors, and media members from across the nation.  It is published weekly.
