Bulldogs inch up to No. 8 in regional rankings

Despite losing at Pfeiffer last week, the Barton College men's basketball team moved up a notch in the NCAA Division II East Region rankings to No. 8, released Wednesday.

Eight is a magic number because there will be eight teams invited to the East Regional — the three conference champions (Carolinas Conference, Pennsylvania State Athletic Association and West Virginia Intercollegiate Athletic Association) and five at-large teams. The Div. II defending champion Bulldogs still have a chance to win the Conference Carolinas' top seed but more likely will hope to be an at-large entry.

Their chance to host the regional for the third straight year is pretty slim but I think a winning streak through the conference tournament could do it.
