Men's Basketball - Mon, Feb. 20, 2012

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Tennessee Wesleyan finally entered the NAIA Division II Men's Basketball Coaches' Top 25 Poll as it came in at No. 24, the NAIA announced Monday.

The Bulldogs (21-9 overall, 14-2 Appalachian Athletic Conference) are currently on a nine-game winning streak and won the AAC regular-season championship. This is the first time Tennessee Wesleyan has been ranked since being No. 23 in the Jan. 17, 2007, poll.

Reinhardt (Ga.) (16-11 overall, 11-5 AAC) also received a vote.

Northwood (Fla.) leapfrogged Oregon Tech for the No. 1 ranking in the 10th installment of the NAIA Coaches' Top 25 Poll. The top position is the seventh overall for the Seahawks this year and they move up thanks to a loss by Oregon Tech on Feb. 18. The two schools have been swapping back-and-forth on top for the last three weeks.

With 12 of the possible 14 first-place votes, Northwood gathered 373 total points. The Seahawks, who are tied with No. 5 McPherson (Kan.) for the most wins in the NAIA (27), host one of the opening round games in The Sun Conference Tournament on Tuesday.

Improving two spots is No. 2 Dordt (Iowa). The Defenders notched the remaining two first-place votes to go along with 358 points. They tie for their highest ranking on the year. Holding the top seed in the Great Plains Athletic Conference Tournament, Dordt hosts Concordia (Neb.) on Wednesday.

Despite a 90-79 loss to Corban (Ore.) on Feb. 18, No. 3 Oregon Tech still wrapped up its fourth-straight Cascade Collegiate Conference regular-season title. The Hustlin' Owls posted 344 total points and welcome College of Idaho to Klamath Falls, Ore., on Wednesday in the first round of the Cascade Collegiate Conference Tournament.

No. 4 Davenport (Mich.) fell one spot after it had its six-game winning streak stopped on Feb. 18, 83-73, to Cornerstone (Mich.). One of three teams to hold from last week, fifth-ranked McPherson (Kan.) recorded 330 points to round out the top five. The Bulldogs won the Kansas Collegiate Athletic Conference outright for the first time since 1945.
