COLUMBIA — The Columbia College men's basketball team maintained the No. 1 ranking in the NAIA for the second straight week after winning all three of its American Midwest Conference games last week.
The Cougars, who are 7-0 in the AMC and 20-0 overall, are followed in the rankings by Lee (Tenn.) University, which jumped up four spots. Pikeville (Ky.), John Brown (Ark.) and Lewis-Clark State (Idaho) are ranked third, fourth, and fifth in the NAIA respectively.
Saturday's victory also marked the 20th time the Cougars have reached 20 wins under coach Bob Burchard.
Senior forward Jordan Dressler currently leads the team in scoring with 13.6 points per game and reached 1,000 career points for the Cougars last week against Lyon College.
Columbia College will face Harris-Stowe State University this Thursday in St. Louis, before returning to the Arena at Southwell Complex on Saturday to take on William Woods University.
