Patriot Men Ranked In NAIA Poll

LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- Georgetown College and St. Catharine College represent the Mid-South Conference in the this week's National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics Men's Basketball Coaches' Poll released on Monday by the NAIA.

The Tigers (12-0, 2-0 in the Mid-South Conference) dropped one spot to No. 3 in this week's poll despite remaining perfect on the season. The Tigers received 293 voting points, including one of the 12 first-place votes. The poll is voted on by a panel of coaches representing each conference and the independents across the NAIA.

St. Catharine (6-2, 1-1) made the biggest jump in the poll leaping from one of the teams receiving votes to No. 15. The Patriots received 164 voting points following their 99-86 upset win of then-No. 4-ranked Mountain State (W.Va.) University. Mountain State dropped to eighth in this week's poll.

Lindsey Wilson College -- who dropped out of the Top-25 after being ranked No. 15 last week -- and Pikeville College are receiving votes from the national raters.

Robert Morris (Ill.) University (10-0) is ranked No. 1 with 310 voting points, including nine first-place votes. Louisiana State University-Shreveport (8-0) is No. 2 with 294 voting points and the final two first-place votes.

The next NAIA Top-25 poll is scheduled to be released on Monday, Jan. 10.
