Inside the MIAA

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


Up and coming

Emporia State: The last remaining unbeaten team in the league would be in first place in the conference if it had played two MIAA games last week. The Hornets, ranked third in the country, received its first legitimate challenge of the year in a 68-64 victory over Northwest Missouri State to kick off league play.

On the skids

Nebraska Kearney: At one point this season, the Lopers were 3-1. Now Kearney is 3-5 overall and 0-2 in league play after losses on the road in Missouri.


- Fort Hays State's Kate Lehman is only five blocks away from averaging a triple-double per game. Right now, she is tallying 15.1 points, 11.3 rebounds and 5.6 blocked shots per contest. She also leads the league in blocked shots with 39 — the next closest is Emporia State's Merissa Quick with 14.

- Anytime the ball leaves Shonte Clay's hand, there's a good chance it's going in the basket. Through eight games, the Missouri Southern player has made 42 of her 60 field-goal attempts, which is a solid 70 percent clip.

Games of the week

Men: Lincoln at Nebraska Kearney

Might as well go with the league game above all else here.

Women: West Texas A&M at Emporia State

A clash of two top-15 teams takes top billing over Lincoln at Nebraska Kearney — two 0-2 teams in the MIAA.
