Ahead of the pack

Northwest Missouri State:
The Bearcats’ grip on the top spot in the league is starting to loosen. A loss to Missouri Southern last week has allowed Central Missouri to close the gap as the league’s frontrunner. Northwest Missouri State has a half-game lead on Central Missouri with three should-win games (Lindenwood, Missouri Western, Southwest Baptist) before playing at Central Missouri on March 1.

Up and coming

Nebraska Kearney:
The Lopers have reeled off seven straight wins and have vaulted into position to host a game during the conference tournament. Nebraska Kearney, at one point, was 1-7 in the league but is now currently in sixth place all along. Spearheading the Lopers’ recent run of success has been Connor Beranek, who has posted 18.6 points per game in Nebraska Kearney’s seven-game winning streak.

On the skids

Washburn:
The Ichabods have suffered three straight setbacks while dropping to seventh in the league. Washburn, with three games left (one home, two road), could be in danger of falling out of the top eight and playing away from home in the first round of the conference tournament.

Notes

- Gibbs grabs weekly honor:
Central Oklahoma senior forward Josh Gibbs averaged 24.5 points and 11 rebounds per contest in two games last week to pick up the league’s men’s basketball Athlete of the Week title. The Butler County Community College transfer also shot 46.7 percent from the field and 85 percent from the free-throw line in two games.

- Numbers up for North: Washburn’s Alex North is knocking on the doorstep of joining Gibbs as the only two players in the league that average a double-double. Gibbs posts 21.1 points and 11.4 rebounds a game, while North is at 15.7 points and 9.9 rebounds per contest. North was averaging an even 10 rebounds a game before only grabbing nine against Northeastern State on Saturday, dropping his rebounding average to 9.9 a game.
