Jags crack national rankings

AUGUSTA, Ga. -- The Augusta State men’s basketball program earned its first national ranking in 30 seasons Tuesday when the Jaguars came in at No. 21 in the latest NABC Top 25 poll.

ASU’s appearance in the national rankings marks the ninth time in program history that the Jags have cracked the poll. ASU’s last national ranking was 12th in the Feb. 22, 1978 poll. During that season, the Jags were ranked as high as seventh and appeared in the poll for four weeks. ASU was also ranked four times during the 1969-70 season.
