Wheeling Jesuit is not that far off the top 25 as they received 8 votes.  They were ranked previously, but a couple of home losses early in conference play drove them out. As we come down the stretch of the season, a late season run by Jesuit could land them in the top 25 by seasons end.   Having 2 teams in the top 25, along with the Nations leading scorer Put’s The MEC in rarified air.  Especially if you consider that this could be considered a more down year when compared to season’s past.
