After checking in as the eighth ranked team in the preseason NJCAA Division III Polls, Cumberland has moved up four spots following an 8-0 start. This is becoming frequently traveled territory for the Women's Basketball Program under Head Coach James Boney, who is no stranger to early season success.
For the third consecutive year the Dukes are off to a hot start. Boney's teams in 2012-13 and 2014-15 started the season winning eleven straight in 2012-13 and thirteen straight just a season ago. In the past three season, Boney is a combined 22-0 in the month of November.
Cumberland hopes to continue their hot start when they host #5 ranked Brookdale Community College next Tuesday night at 7PM. The Dukes will look to avenge a loss to the Jersey Blues in last season's Region 19 Championship Game.
