Wright’s Wonder Rankings

(1) Georgetown (Ky)- Unfortunately 2020 has dealt some tough cards. The Tigers have been on a hiatus for a while now, but still remain the team to beat in my eyes. The regning MSC champs have a big matchup on December 3rd against the new kids on the block in Freed-Hardeman (Tenn).

(15) University of the Cumberlands (Ky)- The Patriots have been one the most dominant teams in the country, and despite their recent hiatus, I expect the team to pick-up where te left off when they begin conference play.

(RV) Shawnee State (Ohio)- The Bears handled business to open MSC play this week by taking down Life (Ga). The Bears remain a team I have a close eye on as the season goes on.

Freed-Hardeman (Tenn)- The new kids on the block made their entrance to the MSC loud and clear with two standout wins to start their inaugural season in the conference. Sitting at 5-0 so far on the season, the team will have a chance to put the nation on notice with a key early season matchup with (1) Georgetown (Ky) on the road on December 3rd.

(RV) Thomas More- The Saints won a hard fought contest on Saturday against Life (Ga) to get to 1-0 in MSC play. Winning close games is key in this conference as every game will be a fight. The Saints look to be a championship contender so far in this conference.

Pikeville (Ky)- 2020 has been rough so far on the Bears, but once the team gets back into action, I expect them to be a championship contender. I’m looking forward to seeing how the Bears will look and respond coming out of a hiatus this weekend in The Show Classic.

Martin Methodist (Tenn)- Facing a hiatus, the Redhawks have shown that they came to compete in the MSC, and showed a lot of promise. I’m looking forward to seeing how the team looks when they open conference play.

Campbellsville (Ky)- Also facing a hiatus, the Tigers are perennial championship contenders in the MSC. The team remains a mystery and with conference play starting soon, I believe they have what it takes to compete.

Lindsey Wilson (Ky)- After a lopsided loss to Freed-Hardeman (Tenn), the Blue Raiders responded with a lopsided win over Bethel (Tenn). The team needs to increase their consistency if they want to be a contender in this conference.

Life (Ga)- After a tough weekend to start MSC play, the Runnin’ Eagles have a bit of time to regroup and try to get healthy before facing Brewton-Parker on Saturday.

Bethel (Tenn)- Coming out of a hiatus, i’m not sure how much to think of the Wildcats lopsided loss to Lindsey Wilson. However, with the circumstances of 2020, I think all teams should have all players ready with the mystery of the season and virus.

Cumberland (Tenn)- The Phoenix are still winless on the season after a tough loss to Freed-Hardeman (Tenn) on Saturday. The team needs to find a rhythm and get things going quickly or they could find themselves in a deep hole in the conference.
