(RV) Central Baptist (Ark)- Idle this week. After dropping their first two games last week, the Mustangs are off until the 18th.
(RV) Harris-Stowe (Mo)- The Hornets came up short in two contests this weekend to Mount Mercy (Iowa) and (#4) William Penn. Deshawn Munson has got to be an early season pick for NAIA Player of the Year as he had a 33 point game against Mount Mercy on Saturday, and 51 points against William Penn on Sunday. The Hornets are off until the 18th vs Baker (Kan)
Lyon College (Ark)- The Scots open their season on January 4th vs Philander Smith College.
Williams Baptist (Ark)- The Eagles got things started with a win against Baptist Bible College to start the season 1-0. The team takes on Crowley’s Ridge on the road on Tuesday, and travels to Martin Methodist (Tenn) on Friday for the Martin Methodist Classic, where they will also play (RV) Lindsey Wilson (Ky) on Saturday.
Columbia College (Mo)- Idle. The Cougars are back in action on Monday, as they host Central Methodist (Mo) and Friday as they travel to Evangel (Mo)
Missouri Baptist- The Spartans picked up two tough wins against Missouri Valley and Mount Mercy (Iowa), and fell to (4) William Penn. The team will travel to Missouri Valley on Saturday.
William Woods (Mo)- The Owls open their season on January 2nd.
Health & Sciences Pharmacy (Mo)- Idle. The Eutectics are back in action on Monday as they host Concordia Seminary-St.Louis on Monday and travel to Brescia (Ky) on Saturday.
Hannibal LaGrange (Mo)- The Trojans came up short against Benedictine (Kan) on Saturday. The team will travel to Missouri Valley on Tuesday.
Wright’s Wonder Rankings
Missouri Baptist- The Spartans look tough to open the season with some quality wins under their belt early. I’ll be looking for consistency in the team’s play as they have solidified team expectations as one of the leaders in this conference so far.
Harris-Stowe- They Hornets had a tough draw to open the season, so don’t think too much into their start. Here’s the deal, until someone in the AMC finds a way to slow down Deshawn Munson, we might see a similar story from last year, where the Hornets overcame a mediocre start to conference play and won the conference tournament and automatic bid to the National Tournament. I will definitely have my eyes on them, as they also have the pieces outside of Munson to make them one of the best offenses in the country. Their defense does raise some eyebrows as the team gives up a lot of points, but again they do have the scorers to potentially match the opponents scoring.
Columbia College- The Cougars are a team that is going to make the game tough no matter the opponent. Coach Brock’s balanced playbook on both ends on the floor makes it tough to prepare and compete against his team. I expect the team to be a heavy contender for the conference title.
(RV) Central Baptist- After going 0-2 to start the season, the Mustangs are getting a close eye on the national scene on their team. The team did have a tough opening weekend schedule, and a lot of people will be watching November 18th when the team takes on Bacone (Okla) at home.
Williams Baptist- A lot of eyes around the AMC will be on the Eagles this week. After starting 1-0, we will see what the Eagles are really about this weekend vs Martin Methodist (Tenn) and Lindsey Wilson (Ky).
William Woods- I’m itching to see the Owls in action. Coach Belt told me he has some good things cooking in Fulton, Missouri. However, I expect the Owls to be contenders, and I have no doubt Coach Belt is ready for round two in the AMC with his squad.
Lyon College- I’m eager to see what Coach Tapp has going at Lyon. The Scots won’t get started until January, but I know the team will be prepared and ready when the time comes.
Health Sciences & Pharmacy- The Eutectics put 108 points on the board in their season opener, as their offense showed their versatile talent on the roster. I’m looking forward to the team’s matchup with Brescia (Ky) on Saturday.
Hannibal LaGrange- Tuesday’s matchup with Missouri Valley will tell us a little bit more of what to expect from this Trojans team come time for conference play.
