Women’s basketball seventh in poll

By FHSU SPORTS INFORMATION

The Fort Hays State women’s basketball team moved to seventh in this week’s WBCA DII Coaches Poll while moving to sixth in the latest D2SIDA Media Poll, both released Tuesday (Jan. 25).

The Tigers (16-2, 10-2 MIAA) dipped five spots in the coaches poll and three spots in the media poll after a 1-1 weekend. Fort Hays State is still receiving two of the 16 first-place votes in the media poll.

Undefeated Glenville State moved up two slots to grab the top spot in this week’s coaches poll, while Ashland rose three spots to occupy the No. 1 ranking in the media poll.

The Tigers have had success when ranked seventh in the national coaches poll, winning all nine games when ranked seventh all-time. FHSU is 127-33 when ranked in the coaches poll during the DII era.

Two other MIAA programs are listed in the top 25, with Nebraska-Kearney dipping to No. 17 in the coaches poll and No. 14 in the media poll. Missouri Western returned to the coaches poll at No. 25 after a one-week hiatus. After defeating FHSU and UNK on the road last week, Missouri Southern is now listed in the receiving votes category.

Currently tied for first in the MIAA standings, the Tigers and Lopers will clash once again on Saturday (Jan. 29) beginning at 2 p.m. in Kearney, Neb.
