ROCK SPRINGS — The latest National Junior College Athletic Association Division I Men’s Basketball rankings featured the Western Wyoming Community College Mustangs Men’s Basketball team in a new spot. Western is now ranked #15 in the nation, moving up two spots from the previous polls.

The Mustangs have been ranked in the top 25 since December 9, 2019. Initially coming in as the #25 team, the Mustangs have slowly climbed their way up the rankings each week. With two victories over Gillette College and Sheridan College to open up conference play, Western continued its progressive ascent in the standings.

Western is currently on an eight-game win streak. That streak includes a significant win over Otero Community College, who was ranked #4 in the country a month ago.
