The Denver Pioneers basketball team is quietly make a name for itself this season, its final as a member of the Sun Belt. The Pioneers have started the 2011-2012 season with a 6-1 record that includes wins over the St. Mary's Gaels, the Southern Miss Golden Eagles and, most recently, the Utah State Aggies, which ended the school's 33-game home winning streak. DU's one loss came against a then No. 18 California Golden Bears.
While no voters have yet to give a vote to the Pioneers in either the AP or Coaches polls, ESPN's Mid-Major Power 15 poll does have the Pioneers at No. 7. They can certainly move up in next week's edition if they can beat the Iona Gaels on Wednesday. Iona is ranked No. 6 in this week's poll.
