WASHINGTON – CUA is ranked No. 11 in this week’s D3Hoops.com Top 25 poll, announced on Monday.  The Cardinals went 1-1 last week, suffering their first conference loss at Juniata, before bouncing back with a convincing win at Moravian.  CUA is currently 13-2 overall and 3-1 in the Landmark Conference.

The Cardinals quickly rebounded from that loss by crushing Moravian 85-59 on the road.  This time it was CUA lighting up the scoreboard, shooting a blistering 62-percent from the floor, including a 68-percent performance in the second half.

Shawn Holmes was one of four Cardinals in double figures with 20 points, while Steve Limberiou knocked down five 3-pointers en route to 19 points.
