FOR RELEASE: Immediate, Tuesday, January 8, 2019

The Hudson Valley men's and women's basketball programs have remained ranked in the latest NJCAA national poll, marking the first time in the modern NJCAA poll era (2001-2002), both programs have been nationally ranked at the same time in back-to-back weeks. 

This week's women's basketball poll keeps the Vikings at the No. 10 spot. Hudson Valley recently completed a 2-0 weekend at the NHTI Tournament in Concord, N.H. in which they defeated host NHTI 90-80 and U-Maine Augusta 89-60. The women's program is currently riding a six-game win streak and are back in action this Thursday, Jan. 10 when they travel to play Clinton. 

The men's team dropped one spot to No. 8 following a holiday break in which they did not have any games. The Vikings finished the first half of the season with an 11-2 record and have won eight of their previous 10 games. The men's program kicked off the spring semester with a 91-79 victory over Columbia-Greene this afternoon in the McDonough Sports Complex.
