Both MSU Basketball Teams Receiving Votes

Men Receiving Votes in NABC Div. II Poll

Midwestern State received a vote in the latest National Association of Basketball Coaches' Division II Poll released Tuesday afternoon.
 
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.

Women Receive Votes Again in WBCA USA Today Poll

The Midwestern State Mustangs received votes in the Women's Basketball Coaches Association's USA Today Sports Division II Top 25 Coaches Poll this week for the seventh time this season.
 
MSU (20-5, 15-4 Lone Star Conference) has been mentioned in the poll as many times this season as they did in total before the season.
 
MSU received three points in the poll this week and is the fourth team from the South Central Region receiving votes.  Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference champion Colorado Mesa is No. 4 and the only South Central team in the poll.  Abilene Christian got 50 points and is three away from the Top 25, while Heartland Conference champion Texas-Permian Basin garnered seven tallies.

MSU has been ranked as high as 25th this season by the WBCA.
 
MSU closes the regular season on Wednesday at D.L. Ligon Coliseum against Texas Woman's.  Tipoff for senior night is at 6 p.m.
