Wonder Boys Stay Put At No. 5

Arkansas Tech will enter the holiday break ranked No. 5 in the National Association of Basketball Coaches NCAA Division II top 25 poll.

The Wonder Boys (11-0) were ranked fifth for a second consecutive week when this week’s rankings were released on Tuesday, Dec. 22.

Tech was 3-0 over the last week. The Wonder Boys earned victories over Ecclesia College, North Alabama and Alabama-Huntsville to run their winning streak to 11 in a row.

The current string matches the eighth-longest winning streak in the 95-year history of Wonder Boys basketball.

There were no changes in the top six spots of the national poll, and only one new team — 24th-ranked Augustana (S.D.) — entered the top 25.
