– Lynn University’s men’s basketball team moved up two spots to No. 18 on the D2SIDA National Media Poll, marking the 14th consecutive week the Fighting Knights have been nationally ranked.

The Blue and White did fall out of the coaches poll this week from the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) however, positioned one spot outside of the rankings. On the media poll, Lynn moved up from No. 20 to a tie for No. 18.

The Fighting Knights have now been nationally ranked for 14 consecutive weeks, with the team’s No. 11 post six weeks ago on the media poll marking the team’s highest ranking this season.

A Florida Southern win over Nova Southeastern in the championship of the Sunshine State Conference Tournament shifted the remainder of the league’s teams a bit. NSU still leads the way for the SSC, coming in at No. 5 (NABC) and No. 4 (D2SIDA). Florida Southern is tabbed No. 25 (NABC) and No. 14 (D2SIDA).

Northwest Missouri State holds its spot at the top of both polls for the sixth week in a row as the only undefeated team left in the country (32-0).
