COMMERCE – The Texas A&M University-Commerce women’s basketball team is the ninth-ranked team in the nation in this week’s Women’s Basketball Coaches Association poll, as announced Tuesday. The Lions have been nationally ranked 21 times in the WBCA poll, seven weeks in a row from 2007-08, and now 14 weeks in a row this season.

The Lions will face a rematch of their LSC semifinal win, as they will take on seventh-seed Eastern New Mexico at 2:30 p.m. on Friday. The semifinal round of the tournament will be on Saturday, with the Regional Championship game to be played on Monday.
