With both teams featuring undefeated 5-0 records early in this hoops season, there is a lot of chatter in the basketball community about the success of the Saint Mary’s men and women’s programs.
Saint Mary’s is one of just 11 programs out of nearly 350 nationally to have both teams undefeated so far this season. The women’s team is ranked fifth in the latest CollegeInsider.com mid-major rankings, while the men’s side is ranked 8th and sits in 10th nationally in the CBSSports.com and realtimerpi.com versions of the Ratings Percentage Index (RPI).
