The Missouri Southern men's basketball team, fresh off a 2014 MIAA Basketball Tournament Championship, is back in the national rankings this week as the Lions moved into the final poll of 2014 at No. 19.

The No. 1 seed Mavericks are ranked ninth nationally and Central Missouri is ranked 20th, one spot behind the Lions. The fourth seed in the regional, Winona State, is receiving votes in the national poll. 

The Lions open up the tournament at Noon this Saturday against Fort Hays State.
