The National Association of Basketball Coaches Top 25 Poll has been released for the week and Augustana College has been ranked second nationally.

Augustana received one first place vote and totaled 384 votes to place second in the poll. The previous highest ranking came in 1988 when the Vikings were ranked 3rd overall. Augie is 23-1 on the season so far.

The Vikings will return to the Sioux Falls Arena this weekend as they host Southwest Minnesota State on Friday night, and the University of Sioux Falls on Saturday night. Tickets for both events can be purchased on ticketmaster and also at GoAugie.com.
