Inside the MIAA

Ben Johnson's look into Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletics Association basketball.


Up and coming

Central Oklahoma: An afterthought two weeks ago, the Bronchos have played themselves into a decent spot in the standings. Currently on a three-game winning tilt, Central Oklahoma has five games left (three at home) against teams below it in the standings, save for a road contest at Northeastern State on Nov. 27.

On the skids

Central Missouri: The Mules are still in decent shape — tied with Fort Hays State for the league lead. However, Central Missouri wrapped up a four-game road swing with a 1-3 mark to bring it back to the rest of the pack.


Accolade for Addison: Marquis Addison was named the league’s men’s basketball Athlete of the Week after guiding Missouri Southern to a 2-0 mark last week. Addison, a 6-4 junior guard from Olathe, Kan., averaged 23 points, eight rebounds and 6.5 assists per game in the Lions’ wins over Southwest Baptist and Central Missouri. It’s the second time this season that Addison has received the honor.

Offensive explosion: During Fort Hays State’s 94-68 victory over Nebraska Kearney on Saturday, the Lions shot lights out from the field in the first half. En route to a 62-32 halftime lead, the Lions shot 69.7 percent (23 of 33) from the field. Freshman guard Craig Nicholson led Fort Hays State in the game with 16 points and 11 assists.

MIAA Women

Ahead of the pack

Washburn: The Lady Blues just continue to roll along, picking up two more wins last week to up their winning streak to six games since losing at Northeastern State on Jan. 19. Washburn’s last four games have been at home, and it will now go on the road for two games (Missouri Western and Northwest Missouri State).

Up and coming

Emporia State: The Hornets have now won seven games in a row, dating back to a loss suffered against Truman on Jan. 12. Emporia State clobbered Lincoln (85-69) and Lindenwood (85-54) last week to continue its ascend up the standings. A full game behind Northeastern State, the Hornets are all alone in fourth right now.
