Women's Basketball - Tue, Jan. 22, 2013 - by Patricia Constantin

KANSAS CITY, MO. (Jan. 22, 2013) - Our Lady of the Lake University has moved from No. 23 to No. 21 in the  fifth regular season edition of the NAIA Division I Women's Basketball Coaches' Top 25 Poll, the national office announced Tuesday.

The Saints, 19-1/12-1, suffered their only loss of the season on Jan. 5 against No. 17-ranked Wiley College (17-1/11-0).  No other Red River Athletic Conference team is included in the Top 25 Poll, however, LSU-Shreveport (15-3/10-2) received 54 votes.

Lubbock Christian University tallied five first-place votes and 275 points en route to the top billing. Lubbock Christian, who held the No. 1 ranking in four-straight polls from Oct. 23 to Jan. 8, returns to the top spot this week.

OLLU received 103 votes this week. The Saints top the NAIA in scoring offense per game (87.500) and in total scoring offense (1,750). They are 2nd in steals per game (17.950), in offensive rebounds per game (19.350) and in turnover margin (11.740). They are 3rd in scoring margin (25.050), in total steals (359) and in total assists (341). OLLU is 4th in total 3-point field goals made (147) and in total rebound offense (903). They rank 6th in total rebounds per game (45.150), 7th in assist/turnover ratio (1.003) and in assists per game (17.050) and 10th in 3-point field goal percentage defense (.258).
 

Top-ranked Lubbock Christian leads the nation in assists per game (18.6), 3-point field goal percentage (0.395), field goal percentage (0.513) and free throw percentage (0.795), while ranking second to OLLU in total scoring (1,638) and scoring offense per game (86.2).  Freed-Hardeman, aided by a five-game winning streak, makes a one-spot leap to No. 2. The Lady Lions check in with four first-place votes and 270 points. Falling two spots to No. 3 is Vanguard  with 264 points. The Lions' drop was due in large part to a 66-56 loss against then-No. 11 Westmont (Calif.) on Jan. 15. Conversely, the victory vaulted Westmont back into the top 10 for the first time since Dec. 11 at No. 9.

Oklahoma City, who handed top-ranked Lubbock Christian its only loss this season on Jan. 10, rides a 13-game winning streak into the week to hold strong at No. 4, while Westminster claims the No. 5 ranking for the fourth time this season. The Stars claimed the final two first-place votes and 261 points, while Westminster received 245 points.

The poll was voted upon by a panel of head coaches representing each of the conferences and unaffiliated group. The sixth regular-season Division I Women's Basketball Coaches' Top 25 Poll will be announced on Jan. 29. For the complete ratings calendar, click here.
