CONGRATS to the Lady Raiders on being ranked in the Top 25 for the first time since 2009. This is a huge accomplishment for the Conference USA especially since Houston and UTEP were the last two teams from Conference USA to crack the Top 25; however this is a huge accomplishment for this program especially since they were in the Sun Belt Conference the last time they made the Top 25. This team is special. This is the best team top 25 team so far this year. Coach Insell has coached this team differently throughout the season. I hope they continue to execute what the coach calls for whether they are playing at home or on the road. I wished we had some of the talent coming out of Riverdale again next year. Davenport put on a clinic against Oakland a week ago. This is a huge accomplishment for this program. I’m glad I decided to attend a four-year university with such great tradition as the Lady Raiders do. Ebony Rowe broke the school’s all-time scoring record that was previously set by Kim Webb 27 years go. 16 game-winning streak and the season is not over yet. Keep it up ladies!!!
