Pointers hoops ranked 7th in D3hoops.com preseason poll


The UW-Stevens Point men's basketball team will enter the 2014-15 season ranked 7th in the country, according to the D3hoops.com Top 25 Preseason Poll that was released on Thursday.

The Pointers finished the 2013-14 season ranked 5th in the nation after going 28-2 and winning the WIAC Championship for the 28th time. UWSP was ranked first in the country for 11 straight weeks last season and won two NCAA Tournament games in their eighth consecutive berth to the national tournament.

UWSP returns 12 letterwinners and two starters from last winter, but will be without the leading scorers from 2013-14. Guards Tyler Tillema and Trevor Hass have graduated, leaving the starting backcourt positions open.

UW-Stevens Point opens its season against Saint John's on Saturday, November 15th at Quandt Fieldhouse, where the Pointers are 117-13 (.900) under head coach Bob Semling.
