Pom’s Power Rankings

  1. (RV) Valley City State- Had their full roster back but dropped a close contest to Viterbo.
  2. Bellevue- Tough loss to Mayville. Wil continue their conference road trip this weekend.  
  3. Mayville- Will need to bounce back after the loss to Dakota State, big game with VCSU this weekend.  
  4. Viterbo– BIG road win over VCSU
  5. Dakota State-The addition of a D1 transfer makes this a very dangerous team riding some momentum.
  6. Dickinson– Solid weekend for them
  7. Waldorf– Have the conferences leading scorer just need others to step up.
  8. Presentation-New faces may be the jumpstart this team needs  

I elected not to move any of the teams in my power rankings this week. The top 5 teams just kind of beat up on each other.  The NSAA may not have the flashiest of players or a high ranked team but this is still a very good league. The top 5 teams all have multiple players that can score big numbers any given night. Whatever team comes out of the NSAA for the National Tournament is a team that cannot be slept on.
