Cougar Basketball Fun Fact No. 20

In our continuing effort to look forward to better days, we'll be bringing you one fun fact about the Cougar basketball team (almost) each day until the season officially tips off on Nov. 15. Some will be silly, some will be serious, but all will be vital to your knowledge as a Cougar basketball fan.

Welcome to our 20th and final fun fact before tomorrow night's tip off! Did you know ...

... that the Cougs have been ranked in the top 25 for one or more weeks in just six different seasons since 1948?

If the Cougs could get into the Top 25 this year, it would be the first time it happened in three consecutive seasons. The 2006-07 and 2007-08 campaigns represent the second time it happened back-to-back; the first was 1948-49 and 1949-50. The other two seasons were 1979-80 and 1983-84.
