ASU ranked third by the NCAA in first 2006-07 South Atlantic Region poll
Augusta State is ranked third in the first South Atlantic Region poll of the 2006-07 regular season, released Jan. 25 by the NCAA. “We thought we’d be in the mix somewhere in the region rankings, and to be third says a lot about our schedule,” said head coach Dip Metress, in his third year at the helm of the Jaguar program. “We’ve played some good teams and we’ve been fortunate enough to play well against them. It’s nice to be recognized, but we won’t get caught up too much in all the rankings. We’ve got a long way to go, and a lot can happen the last five weeks of the regular season.”
The Jags lead the league in six offensive categories, including scoring offense, field goal percentage, and three-point field goal percentage. Augusta State men’s basketball junior forward Tyrekus “AJ” Bowman continues to lead the Jaguars and the PBC in scoring at 20.6 ppg. He was recently featured in Sports Illustrated in Faces In the Crowd.
The Jaguars are nationally-ranked at number 21 in Division II in the latest poll announced on Jan. 30. ASU’s appearance in the national rankings marks the ninth time in program history that the Jags have cracked the poll, with its last national ranking as 12th in 1978. During that season, the Jags were ranked as high as seventh and appeared in the poll for four weeks. ASU was also ranked four times during the 1969-70 season.
