Men Receiving Votes in D2 Media Poll

Midwestern State received votes in the latest D2 Media Poll released Tuesday afternoon by the Division II Sports Information Directors of America (D2SIDA).

The Mustangs regrouped from a 78-59 loss to Angelo State last Wednesday to roll to a 76-53 win over Texas A&M-Kingsville Saturday to clinch a seven consecutive 20-win campaign.

MSU takes on Cameron in the regular season finale Saturday afternoon at D.L. Ligon Coliseum. Tipoff for the Senior Day contest is set for 6 p.m.

Midwestern is one of seven teams from the South Central Region to receive mention in the poll joining No. 5 Tarleton State (Texas), No. 11 Colorado Mines, No. 13 Angelo State, NO. 15 Metropolitan State (Colo.) and No. 20 Colorado-Colorado Springs while Texas A&M-Commerce is also receiving votes.

Florida Southern tops the poll while Bellarmine (Ky.), Lincoln Memorial (Tenn.), Augustana (S.D.) and Tarleton State round out the first five.

Five teams from the South Central Region received mention in the NABC Coaches' Poll also released Tuesday afternoon as Tarleton State is No. 7 followed by No. 11 Colorado Mines, No. 14 Metropolitan State, No. 15 Angelo State and No. 18 Colorado-Colorado Springs.

Florida Southern also tops the NABC Top 25 as the Mocs carry a 25-1 mark followed by Bellarmine (Ky.), Lincoln Memorial, West Liberty (W. Va.) and Minnesota State-Moorhead.

Midwestern State is receiving votes in both the USA Today Sports/WBCA Top 25 and the D2 Media Poll released Tuesday afternoon.

MSU closes the regular season with a Senior Day showdown with rival Cameron Saturday afternoon under the dome. Tipoff for the Red River Rivalry tilt is set for 4 p.m.

The Mustangs are one of four teams from the South Central Region to receive mention in the poll joining No. 5 West Texas A&M while Colorado Mesa and Colorado-Colorado Springs are also receiving votes.

Alaska-Anchorage retained its hold on the No. 1 spot while Lewis (Ill.), Limestone (S.C.), Fort Hays State (Kan.), Columbus State (Ga.) and West Texas A&M rounded out the first five.

MSU fell from No. 17 to out of the D2 Media Poll sponsored by the D2 Sports Information Directors of America, but are still receiving seven votes.

The Mustangs are one of five teams from the South Central Region to receive mention in the D2 Media Poll joining No. 4 West Texas A&M, No. 19 Lubbock Christian (Texas) and Colorado Mesa while Colorado-Colorado Springs is also receiving votes.
