The University of Rochester men's basketball team stand alone at number one in the country in the D-3 rankings.

The Yellowjackets win over Brandeis Sunday pushed the team to the top spot with a 19-0 record.

The team is led by the dominate play of the pre-season All-American John DiBartolomeo, who on Sunday finished with 36 points and converted a school record 19-19 from the free-throw line.

The U of R received 23 of the 25 first place votes in the poll.

The Yellowjackets face a daunting task this weekend, hitting the road for UAA games at New York University on Friday, a team that's 10-1 at home, and a rematch against 25th ranked Brandeis on Sunday.
