Villanova used their win over Towson to improve their position in the polls as the Wildcats inch up to the #6 spot as the previous #6 McNeese State lost to unranked Stephen F. Austin.

The CAA now features five teams in the top 25. In addition to the two Wildcat squads in the top 6, Richmond dropped to #14, William & Mary at #24, and Jame Madison rounds out the poll at #25
