FORT MYERS, Fla. - The FGCU women’s basketball team received eight votes to rank No. 34 in this week’s AP Top 25 that was released on Monday, Feb. 6.

This marks the second consecutive week the Eagles have picked up eight votes to rank No. 34 in the national poll.

In their last outing, redshirt-sophomore Sarah Hansen (McKean, Pa./General McLane HS) scored a game-high 23 points as the FGCU women's basketball team (21-2, 13-0 A-Sun) defeated Jacksonville, 70-60, to pick up their 13th consecutive victory. The win gave FGCU the eighth 21-win season in program history.
