  • The Southern Oregon University men's basketball team is ranked 23rd in the NAIA Division II preseason Top 25 coaches poll.
    It's the first time the Raiders have been ranked since Feb. 22, 2006 — the final poll that season. They were 13th.
    SOU will be led this season by Eric Thompson, who received honorable mention in All-American voting. Preseason all-conference honoree David Sturner highlights a group of nine newcomers.
    The Raiders garnered 101 points. Fellow Cascade Collegiate Conference programs Oregon Tech (second), Eastern Oregon (ninth) and Warner Pacific (15th) are also ranked.
    No other conference has four ranked teams.
    SOU opens the season at Pacific Union on Nov. 2 and will play its first home game on Nov. 20 against Oregon Tech.
