For the first time since early December, the Fort Hays State men’s basketball team is in the NABC top-25. The Tigers, who were ranked as high as 15th before losing three of four in December, are back in this week’s poll at No. 24.
The Tigers are the only MIAA team ranked in this week’s poll. Missouri Southern, who was ranked 22nd, fell out after a loss at conference leading Northwest Missouri State. The Lions, along with the Bearcats are among those receiving votes.
FHSU is at home Thursday to play Emporia State then host Washburn Saturday.
