Wright’s Wonder Rankings
Harris-Stowe State- I stand by what I said a few weeks back about the Hornets taking the conference title until someone can stop Deshawn Munson. Munson again seems to be the best player in the conference, which ultimately gives them a high chance of winning, but the pressure is on the rest of the AMC to put a stop to the Hornets reign.
Central Baptist (Ark)- After a slow start to the season, the Mustangs seem to have gotten their momentum. I fully expect the team to be a threat in the race to the AMC crown.
Missouri Baptist- The Spartan have impressed early in their season. I fully expect to see them be a serious contender in the AMC.
Columbia College (Mo)- The Cougars have impressed early in their season so far. The AMC race has a small margin of error and I feel the Cougars have the team to tab the conference title.
Lyon College (Ark)- The Scots are a total mystery, as they will make their season debut in January.
William Woods (Mo)- The Owls are also a total mystery as they won’t make their season debut until January.
Williams Baptist (Ark)- The Eagles have had their struggles early this season. I’ll be watching their matchup with Bethel (Tenn) this week. I’m not so confident on their title chances, as they have suffered some early lopsided losses.
Health Sciences & Pharmacy (Mo)- The Eutectics have some nice pieces, but ultimately not enough to win in the AMC.
Hannibal-LaGrange (Mo)- The Trojans have struggled early, and it seems they may get overwhelmed come conference play.
