For the first time in eight years, has ranked the Cabrini College men’s basketball one of the top 25 teams in the nation.

The Cavaliers have secured the No. 24 spot under the leadership of second-year coach Marcus Kahn.

“It feels good to be ranked nationally. Our goal is to be top 20 by the end of the season,” Cory Lemons, freshman business major, said.

Cabrini is 18-2 overall and has an outstanding 12-1 mark in the Colonial States Athletic Conference, otherwise known as the CSAC. The Cavaliers hold their spot of first place in the CSAC standings. Cabrini holds a two game advantage over second place team Immaculata University.

“We all feel like we are a tough team and a team to beat. All of our hard work is paying off,” A.J. Williams, freshman business administration major, said.

The blue and white has received many votes in each of the previous nine polls released this season by, earning the season-high of 38 votes.

Ranked No. 1 this season is Guilford College. They are 19-1 overall. Franklin & Marshall College, who are also in the Middle Atlantic Region with Cabrini, lists No. 15 with the overall statistic of 17-3.

The Cavaliers finished their 2001-2002 season with a 19-12 overall record. This put the Cavs in the No. 25 spot in the final poll that season.

Cabrini kicked off the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy and William Paterson University in the 2002 NCAA Tournament before losing to Elizabethtown College.

“We really just want to finish the rest of the season off strong,” Saleem Brown, assistant head coach, said. “Hopefully we can win the CSAC and go as far as possible in the NCAA tournament as we can.”

The Cavs will continue the end of their regular season on Wednesday, Feb. 10 against the Neumann University Knights (13-10). The game is set to begin at 8p.m. at Neumann University in Aston, PA.

“We are ready to win the conference and do damage in the NCAA tournament,” Williams said.
