Although rankings consider results through the previous Saturday, games involving Morehouse and Claflin could have an impact on next week's rankings.
This week Morehouse (17-0) and Claflin (17-2) joined Virginia State (16-1) as nationally ranked HBCUs in this week's NABC Division II Men's Top 25.
VSU's Trojans rose to #8, Morehouse's Maroon Tigers climbed to #10 and Claflin's Panthers fell to #24 following an 86-75 loss to Morehouse Saturday afternoon.
The win over Claflin pushed Morehouse into the top 10 for the first time since 1990.
Claflin went winless on its Atlanta road trip suffering another loss to Clark-Atlanta, 97-82, Monday night. The loss to CAU won't be considered until next week.
