Stingers basketball movin’ on up
In the recent CIS top-10 rankings released Tuesday, both Stinger teams made some noise.
The men’s team took advantage of two losses by the previously no. 1 Carleton Ravens to move up to no. 2 in the poll.
On the women’s side, the Stingers earned a tenth-place vote in the rankings for the first time this season. They did not crack the top 10.
