The Lewis-Clark State men’s basketball team is ranked 5th in the NAIA Pre-Season Coaches Top-25 Poll.
The top-five ranking is the highest-ever pre-season rating in program history.
The Warriors are coming off a 29-3 season that saw them capture both the Frontier Conference regular season and post season championships. The team was the #6 overall seed for last year’s NAIA National Tournament before the coronavirus pandemic forced its cancellation.
The LC men have also been tabbed the favorites to win the Cascade Conference in their first season.
The Warriors open the season with an exhibition game at home November 6th against Yellowstone Christian at the Activity Center.
