Tornado Basketball squad remains in NCCAA Top 10

GREENVILLE, S.C. - King College was once again in the Top-10 in the newest NCCAA Men's Basketball Division I Burbridge Rating, the national office announced, as the Tornado was No. 10.

King was No. 9 the previous two rankings as the Burbridge was 7.00 a week ago. This week's Burbridge for King was 6.86 after two narrow road losses.

Indiana Wesleyan University took the top spot which moved Dallas Baptist (Texas) University down to No. 2. Emmanuel (Ga.) University also climbed a spot to No. 3 while Campbellsville (Ky.) University fell to No. 4. Oklahoma Wesleyan University had the No. 5 spot and was the only team in the Top-5 to remain in place from last week.

King and Campbellsville represented the Mid-East region in the Top-10 with Victory (Tenn.) University coming in next at No. 17. Mid-Continent (Ky.) University followed at No. 18 with Bluefield (Va.) College ranked No. 20.

The rating is based on wins and losses, opponents' winning percentage, location of game and opponents' national affiliation.

The Tornado, at 8-11 on the season, welcomes Alice Lloyd (Ky.) College to Bristol for a 7 p.m. contest Saturday.
