NAIA Basketball Rankings: Davenport moves up a spot to No. 8, Cornerstone up three spots, Rochester still not ranked

December 8, 2012 in NAIA, Rankings

Each Saturday starting today, look for posts showing national rankings for each level of college basketball in Michigan.

Reminder: Rochester College has beat a NCAA Division I team, nearly beat another and played a competitive game against a third. It is absolute lunacy that Rochester is STILL not in the top 25. They received just 18 votes last week and 43 this week, so I guess that’s progress. But come on. This makes absolutely no sense.
