Inside the MIAA

A weekly look at basketball in the Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletics Association



Ahead of the pack

Emporia State:
Only one other team in the nation has as many wins (16) as No. 3 Emporia State and that’s Gannon at No. 2. With an 11-0 mark at home this season, the Hornets are getting to venture out on the road for four of their next five games.

Up and coming

Missouri Southern: While wins against Lindenwood and Lincoln may not be attention-grabbers, the Lions are proving that they’re hard to beat at home. Missouri Southern is 9-0 at home.

On the skids

Lindenwood: At one point, the Lions were 3-1 in league play. Now, Lindenwood sits at 3-5 in the MIAA while starting up at eight teams in the conference standings.


- Lehman lands accolade:
Eighteen- and 19-point efforts against Central Oklahoma and Northeastern State landed Fort Hays State’s Kate Lehman the honor of the MIAA’s women’s basketball Athlete of the Week. Lehman blocked at least three shots in both games and grabbed 12 rebounds at Central Oklahoma.

Games of the week

Men: Mo. Southern at NW Missouri State

Either the Northwest Missouri State strengthens its stronghold on the conference, or Missouri Southern takes over atop the standings while making it a wide-open race for the regular-season crown.

Women: Fort Hays State at Pitt State

Games like this could decide who gets first-round byes in the postseason conference tournament.
