GALESBURG—The Carl Sandburg College men’s basketball team nearly cracked the top 20 in the latest NJCAA Division II poll, which was released Tuesday.
The Chargers (15-6, 4-1) finished three points away from tying Phoenix for 20th in the rankings. Sandburg’s eight points matched Waubonsee for the most among other schools receiving votes. This is the first time this season the Chargers have garnered votes.
Sandburg will put its five-game winning streak on the line at 7:30 p.m. tonight at Black Hawk. The Chargers host Arrowhead Conference leader Highland at 3 p.m. Saturday at John M. Lewis Gymnasium.
