Ahead of the pack

Northwest Missouri State:
Does it seem like this track is on repeat? Because it might as well be. At this point, the Bearcats are just toying with their opponents. Since beating Lindenwood by two on Jan. 30, Northwest Missouri State has blown out Lincoln twice while also posting an easy 28-point victory over Missouri Western.

Up and coming

Central Missouri:
The Mules pulled into second place all by themselves by going 2-0 last week to extend their winning streak to five games. Three road games — Lindenwood, Southwest Baptist and Missouri Western — loom before closing out the regular season at home against Northwest Missouri State.

On the skids

Northeastern State:
With Lincoln posting a win over Lindenwood last week, the RiverHawks now own the longest losing streak in the league. NSU was 6-2 in the league before beginning its current five-game losing streak.


• Cooper claims honor:
In routs of Lindenwood and Missouri Western, Northwest Missouri State’s DeShaun Cooper posted an averaged of 29 points a game last week. By doing so, he was named the MIAA’s men’s Athlete of the Week. He posted a career-high 35 points to cap off his week against Lincoln.

• Leading in freebies: Northeastern State’s Bryton Hobbs is leading the nation in free-throw attempts at 232. He leads fellow conference cohort, Fort Hays State’s Craig Nicholson, by 27 attempts. Shippensburg Joe Lococo is third at 200.
