MSSU Men's basketball earns highest-ever ranking; sit No. 2 in the NABC Div. II Poll

Updated:

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The Missouri Southern men's basketball program has moved up to its highest-ever ranking as the Lions are now ranked second in the National Association of Basketball Coaches Division II Poll. 

The Lions were No. 4 in the preseason poll, which was the previous high point for a men's basketball program at Missouri Southern. Southern finished the 1999-2000 season ranked fifth nationally and started the 2000-01 season ranked seventh in the preseason poll. 

The Lions have been ranked 41 times in the program's history. The most consecutive weeks Southern spent in the poll is ten-straight weeks, which is its current streak dating back to last year.
