COLUMBIA -- The Cougar men's basketball team finished the 2012-13 season with a No. 5 national ranking in the NAIA Postseason Top 25 Poll released on Wednesday. National Champion Georgetown (Ky.) College earned the No. 1 spot, followed by SAGU (Texas), Lindsey Wilson (Ky.), and LSU-Shreveport (La.) in the top five.

Columbia enjoyed the most successful season in program history during the 2012-13 campaign. The Cougars won a school record 35 games on their way to earning the program's first ever No. 1 national ranking on January 15th. That was the first of many accomplishments for the squad as Columbia capped off the first undefeated regular season in school history (30-0) with a 74-69 victory at William Woods (Mo.) University on February 23rd. The Cougars followed that up with an American Midwest Conference (AMC) tournament championship victory against Park (Mo.) University on March 5th. At 33-0, Columbia received the NAIA National Tournament's top overall seed and advanced to the Elite 8 with victories over Oklahoma City University on and Hope International (Calif.) University.

Senior Jordan Dressler topped the individual honors for the Cougars, taking home AMC Player of the Year honors for the second straight season in addition to being named a first team All-American. Junior guards Derrick Dilworth and Devin Griffin were each selected to the first All-Conference squad and also named to the honorable mention All-American team. Head Coach Bob Burchard won his 600th career game with Columbia on November 14th and was named the AMC and NABC-NAIA National Coach of the Year as well.
