Already on the program’s longest-ever winning streak and with a Southern Conference regular season title in hand, Wofford made the Associated Press Top 25 for the first time in program history Monday, ranked 24th.

The Terriers won their 15th straight game Saturday with a 72-64 victory at Furman (which was in the AP rankings for three weeks in December, getting as high as 23rd) to improve to 24-4 on the season and 16-0 in the SoCon, with two games remaining in the regular season.

The Terriers have been in the national conversation for a potential at-large bid to the NCAA Tourney should they fail to get an automatic invitation with a Southern Conference Tournament title.

The winning streak is second only to this week’s new number one, Gonzaga, which has won 17 in a row.

The two schools are the only Division One men’s programs that have not lost a game in 2019.

According to The Associated Press’ men’s college basketball poll, these schools are the current Top 25 teams:
         1. Gonzaga (44)          
         2. Virginia (15)
