BLOG: Inside the MIAA (week of Feb. 20)

With two weeks left in the regular season, here's where things stand in the Mid-America Intercollegeiate Athletics Association.



Ahead of the pack

Fort Hays State and Central Missouri: Both clubs stand at 11-4 in league play. Fort Hays State, which has won its last seven games, closes out the regular season with two games at home (Missouri Western, Lincoln) and one on the road (Washburn). Central Missouri has road games at Southwest Baptist and Washburn with a home game against Truman State sandwiched in between.

Up and coming

Central Oklahoma: Winners of their last four games, the Bronchos have climbed the league standings and are currently in a tie for third with Washburn.

On the skids

Lincoln: It’s been a dreadful season for the Blue Tigers, and losing every game since Jan. 16 adds insult to injury.


Brunson nabs honor: A career-high 35 points against Nebraska Kearney and an average of 22.5 points and 6.5 rebounds throughout the week helped Fort Hays State’s Dwayne Brunson land MIAA Men’s Basketball Athlete of the Week honors. Brunson, a 6-foot-7 junior forward, is Fort Hays State’s leading scorer with 15.7 points per game.

MIAA Women

Ahead of the pack

Washburn: Owning a half-game lead on Central Missouri in the standings, Washburn has won eight straight games and sports a 13-1 mark in league play. The Lady Blues have three home games (Neb. Kearney, Fort Hays State, Central Missouri) and a road tilt (Emporia State) left on the schedule.

Up and coming

Emporia State: The Hornets are playing catch-up behind Washburn and Central Missouri, but nine straight wins have certainly kept them in the race. Emporia State, which is 9-0 at home, has four games left, with three at home against Pittsburg State, Northeastern State and Washburn.

On the skids

Northwest Missouri State: The Bearcats, once 5-5 and in the middle of the pack in the league, are now 5-10 after five straight setbacks.
