The Moccasins,who avenged their only loss ofthe season lastweek by knocking off then third-ranked Barry on the road,moved to the top spotfor the first time since Dec.18, 2001. Four of the top eight teams lostgames lastweek – two of them to squads ranked above them – creating a significantshuffle atthe top end of this week’s poll. After handing No.6 Minnesota State-Moorhead a loss Saturday, Augustana moved up to its highestranking ever as it is second. Bellarmine moved up to third and Angelo State to fourth ahead of previous No. 1 Lincoln Memorial,who became the lastundefeated team in NCAA Division II to lose lastweek when it fell to Carson-Newman. Barry fell three spots to sixth, while Indianapolis and West Liberty moved up to seventh and eighth, respectively. Minnesota State-Moorhead had a three- spotdrop to ninth and Metropolitan State rounds out this week’s top 10. Tarleton State, who hosts Angelo State Wednesday, is ranked 11th this week, followed by Wisconsin- Parkside,BYU-Hawaii,Mount Olive and Colorado- Colorado Springs,who fell from the top 10 after a loss Saturday at Colorado State-Pueblo. Indiana (Pa.) moved up to 16th , while Colorado School of Mines, Western Oregon and Central Missouri occupy the next three spots. The final six spots in the poll are bookended by two teams who have never previously been in the top 25 at the NCAA level.
