BLOOMINGTON, Minn. – The Saint John's University basketball team jumped back into the D3hoops.com Top 25 rankings this week, landing at No. 24 in the latest national poll.

A convincing 79-63 victory over a tough Bethel team on Saturday helped boost the Johnnies back into the national spotlight. Saint John's began the year at No. 20 in the nation but fell out of the rankings following a 65-63 loss at Wisconsin-La Crosse before the Thanksgiving break.
