Nov. 18, 2013
LEXINGTON, Ky. – For the third consecutive week, the undefeated Colorado State volleyball team held steady at No. 10 in the AVCA Division I Coaches Top 25 Poll, released Monday. The Rams earned 993 total points, 10 more than a week ago.
The Rams earned victories over New Mexico and Air Force last week to improve to 25-0, the program’s best-ever start and longest win streak. With a 16-0 mark in Mountain West play, the Rams won their fifth consecutive conference championship over the weekend, earning the automatic berth to a 19th straight NCAA tournament.
UC Santa Barbara, which beat CSU defeated in September, received two votes after knocking off then-No. 21 Cal State Northridge. Pepperdine, San Diego State and Texas A&M have also received votes or have been ranked throughout the season.
All-time, CSU has been ranked more frequently than all but 14 teams in NCAA history, and has earned a spot in the top 10 a total of 62 times – including four consecutive weeks – a figure that ranks 19th among all programs. The Rams are 424-125 as a ranked team, including 119-23 while in the top 10. For a complete list of each top-10 ranking, click here.
As one of two undefeated teams in the country, CSU will look to remain perfect while traveling to San Jose State and Fresno State, the team’s final regular-season road trip. Saturday’s match vs. Fresno State has been pushed up two hours, to 12 p.m. MT. Both matches can be streamed on the Mountain West Network.
Rams move up in RPI: The Rams continue to slowly climb the RPI (Ratings Percentage Index), moving up one spot, to No. 18. The RPI, which plays a large factor in NCAA tournament hosting, is based off three categories: a team’s winning percentage (25 percent), its opponents' winning percentage (50 percent) and the winning percentage of its opponents' opponents (25 percent).
CSU was ranked No. 25 in the first release, on Oct. 7, and has steadily climbed or stayed steady each week.
