UW-Stevens Point (5-0) was last ranked No. 1 after the first week of the 2010-11 season, following its national championship season of 2009-10. Amherst fell from the top spot after losing to Emerson on Saturday.

The Pointers received 16 of 25 first-place votes, while second-ranked Wooster (8) and fourth-ranked Cabrini (1) also received votes in the top spot. UWSP has 611 points, nine ahead of Wooster.

UW-Stevens Point will have a tough test right out of the gate, as No. 8 UW-Whitewater visits Bennett Court at Quandt Fieldhouse on Wednesday night in top-10 showdown. Tip-off is at 7 p.m.
