INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – The NCAA released the first round of the Division II Women's Basketball Rankings Wednesday, with Georgia College (15-10, 12-7 PBC) coming in ninth place.
The Bobcats are ninth overall and fourth among the four Peach Belt Conference (PBC) schools listed. The University of North Georgia is ranked third, with Lander University at No. 4 and Flagler College No. 8. Carson-Newman University of the South Atlantic Conference (SAC) is No. 1.
