By Dustin Kent

The Gulf Coast women’s basketball team continued its season-long run atop both the national and state polls on Monday afternoon.

The Lady Commodores (15-0 overall, 2-0 in the Panhandle Conference) are No. 1 in the latest NJCAA top 25 poll with all seven first place votes as well as the Region 8 Women’s Basketball Coaches Poll with all 16 first place votes.

Gulf Coast is coming off of a dominant 87-62 home victory over Pensacola State and will be back in action Wednesday with a road game against Chipola.

The Lady Indians (18-1, 3-1) are No. 3 in the national poll for the second straight week behind Gulf Coast and No. 2 South Plains (18-0).

Northwest Florida State’s women (16-3, 1-2) fell from No. 8 to No. 9 after going 1-1 on the week with a loss to Chipola and a win over Tallahassee and are the only other Panhandle Conference team ranked in the NJCAA top 25.

The Lady Raiders are also No. 3 in the state poll, followed by Florida Southwestern (15-5), Eastern Florida State (15-4), St. Petersburg (16-5), Daytona State (12-7), Pensacola State (12-8, 0-2), Miami Dade (10-7), and Tallahassee (9-7, 0-2).

On the men’s side, Gulf Coast (14-4, 1-1) remains on the outside looking in on the NJCAA top 25 for the third straight poll and dropped from No. 5 to No. 7 in the state poll after suffering a 93-70 home defeat at the hands of Pensacola State.

Florida Southwestern holds on to the top spot in the state (19-1) with 17 of the available 19 first place votes, while Tallahassee is No. 2 with two first place votes.

Central Florida (18-3) comes in at No. 3, followed by State College of Florida (17-4), Pensacola State (13-6, 2-0), Indian River State (13-6), Gulf Coast, Chipola (13-6, 1-2), Polk State (13-5), and Broward (11-4).

Tallahassee is the only Panhandle team ranked nationally at No. 10. Florida Southwestern is the highest ranked team in the region at No. 2.
