NCBWA Poll

  The Ducks swept a four-game series against New Mexico State and flew to the No. 12 spot in the NCBWA poll.

For the second consecutive week, Virginia is the leader of the pack in the NCBWA poll. The Cavs carry a perfect 7-0 record into the third week of the season with upcoming games against Hartford and Seton Hall.

Virginia went 4-0 this past weekend with wins against La Salle and three against Marist, including an 18-inning marathon in the series finale on Sunday that the Cavs eventually won on a walk-off single by freshman Christian Lowry.

Falling to the No. 5 slot was preseason favorite Vanderbilt. The Commodores lost the Saturday game of their weekend series with Indiana State and now sits with a 4-2 record. Rounding out the top five is No. 2 TCU followed by Florida and LSU.

Making the biggest leap in the poll was No. 12 Oregon. The Ducks jumped up from No. 18 following a four-game sweep of New Mexico State to extend their record to 7-1.

Newcomers to the poll are No. 26 UC Santa Barbara, No. 27 Illinois, Missouri Valley Conference-leading Dallas Baptist at No. 29 and No. 30 FAU. The Patriots face host Massachusetts-Lowell this weekend.
