Muleshoe_Jennies

Riding a 12-game winning streak, Jennies basketball has reentered the WBCA Top-25 poll. The Jens come in at No. 22 after spending the last few weeks in the receiving votes category. 

Central Missouri started the year ranked 11th in the preseason poll. The Jens had dropped into the receiving votes category after two weeks of action and are back in for the first time this year during the regular season.

The Jens have won 12 straight games and last week defeated Rogers State and Northeastern State on the road to run their record to 15-3 and 9-0 in the MIAA.

Sitting atop the poll is in-state rival Drury at 19-0. They are followed by Ashland, Grand Valley State, Texas A&M-Commerce and Indiana (PA).

The Jennies are one of two teams in the WBCA top-25 from the MIAA. Fort Hays State ranks 16th. Emporia State also is receiving votes.
