WINONA LAKE - After a string of impressive victories, Grace’s men’s basketball team has moved into the NAIA Top 25 Coaches’ Poll.

The Lancers are in the “receiving votes” section of the poll thanks to a record of 11-4 (4-2 Crossroads League).

Grace has won five straight games, including back-to-back NAIA Top 25 upsets. The Lancers took down No. 1 Indiana Wesleyan and then-No. 20 St. Francis in consecutive outings.

The league is well-represented in the current NAIA poll with No. 1 IWU, No. 8 Marian, No. 19 Bethel, No. 24 St. Francis and Grace (RV). This is the first year since 1991 that the NAIA has moved to one division; the NAIA was two divisions from 1992-2020.
