Emory & Henry (18-7, 12-4 ODAC) has won seven straight and 13 of its last 16 games en route to a third-place finish in the ODAC regular season. It is the second week in a row that the Wasps have been recognized as one of the top programs in the South.

Hardin-Simmons University is the new regional No. 1 as Guilford College drops to No. 3 following its loss to E&H last Wednesday. Also ranked from the ODAC is Randolph-Macon College (sixth) and Virginia Wesleyan College (eighth).
