Columbia College men's basketball remains atop NAIA poll for fourth straight week

Tuesday, February 5, 2013 | 7:37 p.m. CST

The Columbia College men's basketball team extended its place atop the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics rankings for the fourth week in a row, receiving all 11 first-place votes to unanimously top the poll released Tuesday. The Cougars are currently off to their best ever start to a season.

Columbia College notched two easy wins last week and still hasn't suffered a loss this season, bringing its record to 24-0 after league victories over Williams Baptist (Ark.) College, 89-53, and Park University, 68-54.

Senior Jordan Dressler was also named American Midwest Conference (AMC) Player of the Week, averaging 15 points and 10 rebounds during last week's action. Dressler leads the team in both scoring (13.5 points per game) and rebounding (7.2 per game) this year after collecting AMC Player of the Year honors last season.

The Cougars return to the court Thursday, when they will travel to Springfield, Ill., to face league newcomer Benedictine University at 7:30 p.m.
