The Lewis-Clark State College men’s basketball team has attained its highest ranking in program history as the unbeaten Warriors are ranked 3rd in the latest NAIA National Top-25 Poll.

At 18-0 on the year, LC is one of only two undefeated teams in the country.

Warrior head coach Brandon Rinta says its a really exciting feeling given the team was unranked and virtually unheard of before the season.
