Balance, Depth, Lead Philly U Women To Top Of CACC

Despite a 16-5 record, and a perfect 14-0 mark in the Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference, the Division II Lady Rams have not had anyone selected as the conference’s player of the week this season. That’s not so much a slight as it is the fact that it’s really, really hard to pick just one player that makes this team go.

Wait… Philly U Is Playing Who?

It is not unusual for Division II college basketball teams to step up in exhibition games and take on Division I programs. The local scene has seen several area squads do just that over the last week, on both the men’s and women’s side.
