Mustang Men Receiving Votes in Top 25

Two-time defending South Central Region champion Midwestern State received seven votes in the latest National Association of Basketball Coaches' Division II Poll released Tuesday afternoon.
 
The Mustangs are off to a 5-0 start for the third time since becoming a member of NCAA Division II in 1997.
 
MSU, which boasts a +23.2 scoring margin, is the only D2 school in the nation to play in the last two Elite Eights.
 
Still, the Mustangs are ranked behind five of the six other teams from the South Central Region in the latest poll.
 
Defending MIAA champ Missouri Southern (6-0) jumped ahead two spots to No. 2 behind 2010-11 national champion Bellarmine (Ky.).
 
Midwestern derailed the Lions by a 75-52 margin in the South Central Region semifinals last March in Edmond, Okla.
 
Arkansas Tech, a Great American Conference transplant, moved forward nine places to No. 15 while Lone Star Conference foe Tarleton State (4-1) dropped eight places to No. 16 after suffering its first loss of the season to unranked Washburn (Kan.).
 
Fort Hays State (6-0) jumped into the rankings at No. 24.
 
Central Missouri (13 votes) and Arkansas-Monticello (6 votes) are also receiving votes.
 
Midwestern State opens Lone Star Conference play on the road against Texas A&M-Commerce Wednesday night at A&M-Commerce Fieldhouse. Tipoff is set for 8 p.m. or 25 minutes following the conclusion of the women's game which begins at 6.
