LILBURN, Ga. - The University of South Carolina Aiken women's basketball team moved up one spot to a new program-best third in the third 2012-13 regular-season USA Today/ESPN Division II top-25 Coaches' Poll.
The ranking moves up the Pacers from their spot of fourth in the second regular-season rankings of the year last week. The Pacers had been ranked fifth in the preseason and first regular-season poll.

USC Aiken is one of two Peach Belt Conference schools ranked inside the top-5 currently with Clayton State just one spot below the Pacers in fourth.
Ashland is still the nation’s No. 1 team. Bentley is just ahead of the Pacers in second. Indianapolis rounds out the top-5 in fifth.
USC Aiken (5-0) recently completed its season-opening five-game homestand with a perfect 5-0 record.
