The Mustangs clinched their fifth Lone Star Conference championship in the last seven years last week while moving to 18-7 on the season. MSU has claimed seven league titles since joining the LSC in 1996-97 which is four more than any other school in the conference during that span.
 
MSU is one of just four teams from the South Central Region to receive mention in the poll including No. 2 Metropolitan State (Colo.) and No. 17 Fort Lewis (Colo.) while Newman (Kan.) is also receiving votes.
 
The Mustangs close the regular season with a Senior Day matchup against Paul Quinn (Texas) Sunday afternoon at D.L. Ligon Coliseum.
 
MSU opens the LSC postseason tournament on Wed., March 6 against an opponent to be determined at the Allen (Texas) Events Center. Tipoff is set for 8:30 p.m.
