MSU Men Slip to #6 in NABC Poll

Midwestern State slipped one spot to No. 6 in the latest National Basketball Coaches' Association Division II poll released Tuesday afternoon.
 
The Mustangs had a six-game winning streak snapped at West Texas A&M last Wednesday in Canyon, then recovered to claim a 79-64 win over Eastern New Mexico Saturday night at D.L. Ligon Coliseum Saturday to clinch a share of its sixth Lone Star Conference title.
 
The Mustangs (23-3) head into the LSC postseason tournament as the league's top seed. MSU faces Texas A&M-Commerce in the opening round Wednesday night at the Allen (Texas) Events Center. Tipoff is set for 8:30 p.m.
 
Midwestern is one of six teams from the South Central Region to receive mention in the poll joining No. 7 Tarleton State, No. 18 Northwest Missouri State, No. 19 Missouri Southern and No. 21 Arkansas Tech while Washburn (Kan.) is receiving votes.
 
Defending national champion Bellarmine (Ky.) reclaimed top billing as the unanimous No. 1 followed by Colorado Mines at No. 2 and Alabama-Huntsville at No. 3 while last week's top-ranked West Liberty (W. Va.) squad slipped to No. 4.
 
Shaw (N.C.), MSU, Tarleton State, Christian Brothers (Tenn.), Indiana (Pa.) and Northern Kentucky round out the Top 10.
 
Western Washington tips off the second 10 at No. 11 followed by Metropolitan State (Colo.), Southern Indiana, Kentucky Wesleyan, Alaska-Anchorage, Anderson (S.C.), Lincoln Memorial (Tenn.), Northwest Missouri, Missouri Southern and Indianapolis (Ind.).
 
Arkansas Tech, Charleston (W. Va.), District of Columbia, Franklin Pierce (N.H.) and Seattle Pacific (Wash.) round out the poll at Nos. 21-25.
