DE PERE - For the first time ever, both St. Norbert College basketball teams are ranked in the pre-season D3hoops.com Top 25 poll.

The St. Norbert men, making their first appearance in the pre-season Top 25, check in at No. 10. The women, receiving a pre-season nod for the first time since being ranked 17th in 2008, are ranked 21st.

Both teams finished 23-4 last season, won Midwest Conference championships with 14-2 records and advanced to the second round of the NCAA Division III Tournament before losing to UW-Stevens Point.

The men return all five starters from last year's squad, and open their season on Monday, Nov. 15 at Marian University.

The women, who return three starters from a year ago, host the Baylake Bank Tip-Off Tournament on Nov. 19-20 at Schuldes Sports Center. The Green Knights face Macalester College at 7 p.m. Nov. 19 in their season opener.
