KANSAS CITY -- For the sixth straight week, the Cougar men's basketball squad is ranked atop the NAIA Top 25 poll with a perfect record of 28-0 and 14-0 in the American Midwest Conference (AMC). Columbia, the NAIA's last remaining unbeaten team, earned all 11 first-place votes and enters the final week of the regular season just two games away from becoming the first undefeated team in program history. Georgetown (Ky.) College was the last NAIA school to complete an undefeated regular season, finishing 31-0 in 2007-08.

Lee (Tenn.) University checked in behind Columbia at No. 2 for the fifth straight week, followed by John Brown (Ark.) University, Lindsey Wilson (Ky.) College, and Lewis-Clark State (Idaho) College rounding out the top five.

The Cougars went 3-0 last week with wins over Hannibal-LaGrange (Mo.) University, Missouri Baptist University, and Lyon College. Saturday's victory over Lyon clinched Columbia's third consecutive AMC regular season championship. For the year, Columbia leads the NAIA in scoring defense (55.1 ppg), assist/turnover ratio (1.55), scoring margin (+25.0 ppg), and field goal percentage defense (.370).

The Cougars will host Harris-Stowe State (Mo.) University tomorrow night, February 20th, in their final home game of the 2012-13 regular season. Game time is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. at the Arena of Southwell Complex. Columbia will then close out the regular season on Saturday, February 23rd at William Woods (Mo.) University. Tip-off is set for 4:00 p.m. in Fulton, Mo.
