Here are the remaining undefeated teams in DII men’s basketball listed in order of NABC ranking:
No. 1 Bellarmine (15-0)
The Knights beat No. 12 Barry and Northern Michigan to win the Bellarmine Classic. They have also found ways to win consecutive gritty victories in GLVC play against UMSL and Maryville. This team is showing they can win big and control a game as well as dig deep to grind one out on their off nights.
Bellarmine improves to 12-0 and 3-0 in GLVC with overtime thriller to defeat Maryville. Chivarsky Corbett had 21 points and 8 rebounds while Adam Eberhard added 26 points, 9 assists, and 6 rebounds. pic.twitter.com/g2DYxaVXIy— Bellarmine Athletics (@BUKnights) January 6, 2019
No. 2 Northwest Missouri State (16-0)
The Bearcats have already built an impressive resume, beating the defending runners-up and champs on consecutive nights to open the season. The heart of a very tough MIAA schedule gets going in January, so Northwest Missouri State will be put to the test early in 2019.
