USI men's basketball ranked second in CBSAguide

EVANSVILLE, Ind. The University of Southern Indiana men's basketball team was ranked second in the NCAA Division II by the CBSAguide. The CBSAguide is a website designed to aid college bound student athletes in their choice of a school.

To qualify for the ranking, a program must have a .650 or better winning average record over the last eight years and have had the same head coach for the previous four years. A program with a new head coach can still be ranked if it has a .650 or better record over the last eight years.

The Eagles also have a 158-40 record (.798) under USI Head Coach Rick Herdes since he took over the program in 2001-02. The Screaming Eagles have won more games during Herdes' six year than any other Division II program in the country.

USI, which has averaged over 27 victories the past five seasons, has an .824 winning percentage (235-50) since 1999-2000. The Screaming Eagles has won 20-or-more games each of the last 15 years and appeared in 14 of the last NCAA Division II Tournaments.
