  • 1. KANSAS CITY, Mo. – West Liberty and Augustana continue to hold the top two spots in the latest NABC/Division II men’s basketball rankings, but a volatile week among ranked teams has shook up the balance of this week’s top 25. Fairmont State, whose only loss this season was a two-point loss at West Liberty, moved up to third and is followed by Midwestern State and Cal Poly Pomona. Last week’s third- and fourth-ranked teams suffered losses to allow all of those teams to advance. Tarleton State moved up three spots to sixth and Eckerd, now the owner of the longest winning streak in NCAA Division II at 14 games, vaulted five spots to seventh. California Baptist checks in at eighth this week and Bellarmine re-entered the top 10 at ninth on the strength of an eight-game winning streak. MSU Moorhead lost Friday to the University of Mary, ending a 16-game winning streak and dropping the Dragons to 10th . They are followed by two teams that moved up three spots apiece in Western Oregon and Saint Anselm. Queens (N.C.) fell from the ranks of the unbeaten Saturday with a loss to Lincoln Memorial and fell to 13th in the process, while UC San Diego came in at No. 14. Angelo State, who was also spotless prior to last week, lost twice and fell to 15th as a result. Lincoln Memorial moved up to 16th on the strength of its win over Queens, while Ashland, Fort Lewis, Lake Superior State and Indianapolis hold the next four spots. The final five spots in this week’s ranking are held by Columbus State, Delta State, Barry, Wheeling Jesuit and Chico State. For Wheeling Jesuit, who is off to a 13-1 start, it marks the first appearance for the Cardinals in the national top 25 since Feb. 11, 1997.
