Once again, the Regis men’s basketball team has found themselves in a perfect position to succeed in this year’s playoffs. Sitting at 20-5 overall should put the team in a nice ranking position so that they won’t have to face a tough team until the later rounds. In fact, since Winter break the Rangers have gone 8-1.
The team’s success has come from all across the roster, but a few players have been extremely instrumental in the team's recent victories. Leading the Rangers is Dexter Sienko who earned his second RMAC defensive player of the week award this past week. Sienko is also averaging a smooth 15 points and 5 rebounds per game. Sophomore Christian Little has also had a strong season averaging 14 ppg and 5 rebounds.
If you haven’t been able to see the Rangers play yet, it is not too late! The Rangers will close out their season with three straight home games in the evening on the 17th,23rd, and 24th. These games should be a nice warm-up for the playoffs that begin on the 28th of this month.

93-88 Victory over UC-Colorado Springs
82-79 Victory over Metro
73-67 Victory over Chadron State
