Women's Basketball Rises in Polls

BRUNSWICK, Maine - The Bowdoin College women's basketball team climbed in the latest national rankings released on Tuesday. The Polar Bears, currently 11-1 this season, are ranked second in the ESPN/USA Today Coaches Poll and stand third in the rankings.

Bowdoin will put their eight-game winning streak on the line Friday, when they travel to Lewiston to play at Bates in a key NESCAC contest.

The men's team will also play Bates on Friday, but will host the Bobcats at 7:00 p.m. in Morrell Gymnasium in their NESCAC season-opener.
