Hope's strength of schedule is currently #375 out of 392 teams https://www.d3baseball.com/seasons/2019/schedule?tmpl=sos-template.  You still have to be good to have that kind of record.  As Ralph implied, many voters are most likely waiting to see how they fare against Adrian before placing them in the top 25.  Unfortunately, that is their last series of the year.

I think Hope will do well against Adrian as the wins will give them a confidence boost and the head game will be even between the two teams as Hope will be playing like they will win.

Having followed the MIAA for more than a decade, the Adrian program has demonstrated that they are a perennial national power.

When the Regional Rankings come out, Hope should be in the Rankings, especially because of the winning percentage.

I watched Adrian play down south and they are the real deal. If Hope can split with them, that 25-1 record looks really good.

CWRU defeats Heidelberg 8-1

Spartans are now 5-5 against teams receiving Top 25 votes.  And have the highest SoS in D3.
