The Ashland University men's basketball team was receiving votes in the latest National Basketball Coaches Association national poll released on Tuesday (Nov. 21) afternoon.
It is the Eagles' first appearance in the rankings this season after starting with three straight wins heading into this week's AU Thanksgiving Classic, presented by Hampton Inn & Suites.
Ashland last made an appearance in the NABC Top 25 in the final poll of the 2015-16 season when it landed at No. 12 to finish a six-week run inside the top 25.
The Eagles (3-0) play host to Indianapolis on Tuesday (Nov. 21) at 5 p.m. to open the weekend. They will follow that with a 3 p.m. tip against Kentucky State on Wednesday (Nov. 22) at Kates Gymnasium.
The Eagles are in their ninth season under head coach John Ellenwood, who led Ashland to an NCAA Tournament appearance in 2016 – its first since 1991.
