CHARLOTTE, N.C.- For the second straight week, the Florida SouthWestern State Buccaneers are slotted at #17 in the NJCAA Top 25 poll.
FSW checks in at 13-2 at the break following three straight wins over the past week. The Bucs have now won nine straight to close the first half, including avenging both early season losses against Broward and DME Academy.
Little changed in the week four poll with the same 25 teams represented for the second straight week. Everyone in the back end of the top 10 moved up a spot as #4 Shelton State dropped down to #12 following a loss to #13 Jones County. Each spot from 14-25 mirrored the week three poll. Three of the top four teams reside in the Sunshine State with Northwest Florida at #1, Tallahassee at #3 and Chipola at #4.
The Bucs are back in action on December 28th and 29th when they host FSC-Jacksonville and Santa Fe in Suncoast Credit Union Arena in the FSW Classic.

SUNCOAST CREDIT UNION ARENA
The Buccaneers compete in the brand new Suncoast Credit Union Arena. Suncoast Credit Union Arena is approximately 75,000 square feet and is home to the FSW basketball teams and a student athletic center. The arena seats approximately 3,300 fans and includes six skyboxes, a hospitality event center, competition courts that convert into recreational courts, athletic office space, student, faculty and staff wellness, and an athletic center with a fitness pavilion, men's and women's locker rooms and a weight training area. The arena has two Daktronics displays, on the north and south walls, that each measure 10 feet high by 20 feet wide. Both displays incorporate variable content zoning to each show one large image or they can be divided into multiple windows to show any variety of live video, instant replays, up-to-the-minute statistics, graphics and animations, and sponsorship messages. One-hundred feet of ribbon displays have been installed on the east and west walls of the arena. The ribbons provide the opportunity to supplement the content on the main displays as well as highlight sponsors throughout events.
