Wonder Boys Stay in Top 25

Despite an early-season loss at Drury University, the Arkansas Tech Wonder Boys remained inside the National Association of Basketball Coaches NCAA Division II top 25 poll when the first regular season rankings for 2010-11 were announced on Tuesday.

The Wonder Boys (3-1) are No. 22 in this week’s poll. Arkansas Tech was ranked 13th in the preseason NCAA Division II men’s basketball poll.

Tech has defeated Ozark Christian College, Lambuth University and Ecclesia College so far this season, but it was an 87-72 loss at Drury on Nov. 17 that cost the Wonder Boys nine spots in the poll.

This marks the 17th consecutive week that Arkansas Tech has been ranked in the NCAA Division II top 25 men’s basketball poll.

The Wonder Boys will hit the road during the upcoming week for games at West Alabama (4 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 27) and West Georgia (6:30 p.m. CST on Monday, Nov. 29).

KWKK 100.9 FM and www.athletics.atu.edu will have the play-by-play description of both games.
