Pom’s Power Rankings
- (RV)Bellevue– started the season 3-1. See if they bounce back after a poor offensive outing in their last game when they take on two GPAC teams that appeared in the NAIA preseason poll
- Mayville State-Went 1-0 on the week need to see a larger sample size to see if they are on the same level as Bellevue
- Dakota State-Idle this week open their season this week with two tough GPAC opponents
- Viterbo– Idle this week also open their season against two tough GPAC opponents this week.
- Dickinson State– Got an impressive win over Montana Tech to start their season. Followed it up with a very competitive game with Briar Cliff and a solid win over Doane. Going to be a better team then many including myself thought.
- Valley City State- Dropped their season opener to rival Jamestown, will need to find their second big scorer to compliment Kevin Schramm
- Presentation- Had some bright spots in their season opening loss to Jamestown, will be a better team than last season.
- Waldorf- Need to find a way to combat their shooting woes from their first two games.
