Yeshiva University’s men’s basketball team has been ranked in the Division III Top 25 for the first time.

The Maccabees are ranked No. 24 in a listing released on Monday on the website, voted on by a panel of 25 coaches, sports-information directors and reporters from across the country.

The Top 25 list is published weekly. Monday’s list included games through Jan. 26.

The team from Swarthmore College is ranked No. 1, with the last spot on the list given to the Judges at Brandeis University.

The Maccabees have a 14-1 record overall and are in first place in the Skyline League with a 7-0 mark. They qualified in 2018 for the NCAA Division III basketball tournament for the first time ever, but were eliminated in the first round.

Support Jewish Journalism
with 2020 Vision

JNS is more than just another news website and syndication service. It is an organization devoted to nonstop reporting, and telling the truth about Israel and Jewish issues unburdened by the biases and institutional blinders that distort so much of what we read, hear and see about these topics elsewhere in the secular and even Jewish press.

At JNS, you get the facts about Israel and Jewish issues without the bias that so often tilts the argument against the Jewish state. JNS articles and columns are republished every week by digital outlets and print newspapers across the globe. But in the age of round-the-clock news coverage, advertising and syndication revenues are not enough to support our continued growth. We need your financial help to keep JNS on target as we continue our fair and accurate reporting.

Please help us take JNS to the next level with a tax-deductible sponsorship, either on a recurring monthly basis. Jewish News Syndicate is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization.
