Culver-Stockton is Buzzing
Don't look now, but Culver-Stockton College is back in the top 25 listing for the NAIA Division 1 National Basketball Poll this week. Culver cracked the top 25 earlier this year but a 3 game losing streak dropped them out of the top 25 for a while. A recent 6 game winning streak catapulted them back into the poll this week at number 23, tied with Mid-America Christian University in Oklahoma.
The Wildcats have been a very pleasant surprise with a record of 20 and 6 and 11 and 3 in conference play which puts them in second place in the Heart of America Conference. If you haven't seen the Wildcats in action this season they will be back on the hardwood at the Charles Field House tomorrow night at 7:30 in Canton, Missouri when they host Graceland University. Their big game is this Saturday in Springfield, Missouri when they tangle with conference leader Evangel University.
For quite some time Culver-Stockton has struggled to be competitive so its great to see the program turn around again. "Harvard on the Hill" is buzzing again.
