Riding an 11-game win streak, the Westminster Griffins have a top-five ranking locked down.

For the third-straight week, the Westminster College women's basketball team was ranked No. 5 in the weekly NAIA Division I Women's Basketball Coaches' Top 25 Poll Tuesday afternoon. The Griffins received 245 points in the sixth poll of the season.

Curently 19-2 overall so far this season, the Griffins stand as the lone unbeaten team in Frontier Conference games with an 8-0 record. Westminster has been ranked in every poll this season and 17 consecutive polls dating back to Dec. 12, 2011.

Lubbock Christian (Texas) continues its reign at No. 1 with its sixth No. 1 spot of the year. The Lady Chaparrals received six first-place votes and 276 points in the poll. The weekly poll is voted upon by a panel of head coaches representing each of the conferences as well as an unaffiliated group. Next week's Top 25 poll is scheduled to be announced on Feb. 5.
