Gonzaga is the new No. 1 team in espnW's mid-major top 10. Central Michigan, South Dakota, UAB and Ohio round out the top five.
South Dakota replaced Drake as the No. 1 team in espnW's mid-major top 10, with South Dakota State and Gonzaga rounding out the top three.
Drake, South Dakota and Gonzaga helped mid-majors to their best Bracketology showing, while South Carolina is in unfamiliar territory as an 8-seed.
Belmont jumped one spot to No. 2 in our updated mid-major rankings, but the Bruins still trail No. 1 Drake, which is 6-1 and beat South Carolina.
With all five starters back, the Bulldogs are balanced and experienced. South Dakota State, Belmont, South Dakota and Bucknell round out the top five.
The NCAA tournament field is taking shape, as five more automatic bids were won Tuesday. That left South Dakota on the wrong side of the bubble, and Minnesota, Rutgers, Creighton and Nebraska as the "last four in."
First the first time in program history, Belmont broke into the AP Top 25 last week. And after Green Bay stumbled, the Bruins are the new mid-major No. 1.
For most mid-majors, three days in March can either confirm or erase four months of work. These are the hottest mid-majors to watch as Championship Week -- and possibly an NCAA bid -- awaits.
Several mid-major teams are close to wrapping up unbeaten conference seasons, including Missouri Valley leader Drake, which replaces Green Bay in the top spot of our mid-major rankings.
For the first time this season, little changed at the top of Graham Hays' mid-major rankings. But while the top four stayed the same, Colorado State landed at No. 6 and James Madison at No. 9.
For two straight polls, the No. 1 team in espnW's mid-major rankings promptly lost. So the top spot changes hands for the fourth time in five tries, with Green Bay returning for a second go.
New poll, new No. 1. Drexel takes over the top spot in espnW's mid-major rankings. Three new teams -- Saint Louis, Western Kentucky and Boise State -- joined the top 10.
A schedule shortened by the holiday still offered plenty of games and performances to single out. Sophomore guard Allison Arens, who led the Coyotes past their archrival, took top honors.
With three victories against power conference schools, Gonzaga climbed to No. 1 in espnW's mid-major poll. Two new teams -- South Dakota and Harvard -- joined the top 10.
South Dakota has hired Northern Kentucky women's basketball coach Dawn Plitzuweit to lead the Coyotes.
Nebraska introduced South Dakota's Amy Williams as its new women's basketball coach Tuesday, a week after Connie Yori's unexpected resignation.
In his final poll of the season, Graham Hays takes a look at each team's player to watch, why each team might find its way into the NCAA tournament and what lies ahead in Championship Week.
For the second consecutive ranking, Florida Gulf Coast tops Graham Hays' mid-major poll. Green Bay climbed back up to No. 2, with South Dakota, South Dakota St. and BYU rounding out the top five.
Granted a season of eligibility she didn't expect, Nicole Seekamp won't be home for Christmas. And that's fine. The Australian fifth-year senior feels right at home playing for South Dakota.
