CLAREMORE — The Rogers State women’s basketball team slipped one spot to No. 14 in the 10th regular-season edition of the 2012-13 NAIA Division I Women's Basketball Coaches' Top 25 Poll, the national office announced Tuesday.

The Hillcats rounded out the regular season with a 1-1 week, earning a victory over St. Gregory’s and falling to No. 2 ranked OCU. The Stars held onto the No. 2 ranking and Lubbock Christian rounded out the Sooner Athletic Conference schools in the Top 25 with the No. 4 ranking.

Freed-Hardeman (Tenn.) topped the poll as the only one-loss team in the country. No. 3 Westmont (Calif.) moved up one spot and Westminster (Utah) slid two spots to round out the top five.

No. 18 Georgetown (Ky.) enjoyed the largest jump this week with a two-spot leap. The Tigers have won five-straight en route to a 21-8 record.

No. 18 Campbellsville (Ky.) dropped two spots from last week to join Westminster as the poll's largest fall. The Tigers are 4-3 in their last seven and 22-8 overall.

No. 24 Carroll, propelled by its victory against then-No. 3 Westminster on Feb. 21, is this edition's lone newcomer. The Fighting Saints replaced previous No. 24 Southern Poly (Ga.) who dropped out after falling victim to unranked Coastal Georgia on Feb. 21, 79-64.
