Hutchinson CC Sports Information

The Hutchinson Community College men's basketball team plummeted nine spots in this week's NJCAA Division I Rankings.

The reason was a two-game losing streak as Hutchinson dropped a 102-87 decision at Barton and falling 87-79 to Seward County at the Sports Arena.

The Blue Dragons are now 18-5 with a home game against Northwest Tech on Wednesday and a road game at Garden City on Saturday.

Hutchinson has now been ranked in 53 straight polls and in 84 of the last 85 rankings periods. The No. 22 ranking is the lowest the Blue Dragons have been ranked this season.

The Blue Dragons are now the fourth highest-ranked Jayhawk Conference team in the rankings. Coffeyville remains No. 3. Despite the win over Hutchinson, Seward County fell to No. 17. Barton re-emerged in the Top 25 with a No. 19 ranking.

Florida SouthWestern received 13 of 16 first-place votes and remains No. 1 for the third-straight week. Vincennes had the other three first-place votes and is second. Coffeyville, Northwest Florida State and John A Logan round out the Top 5.
