LINCOLN–(NWU Athletics)–Despite two conference wins last week, the Nebraska Wesleyan University men’s basketball team fell one spot to No. 11 in this week’s D3hoops.com/NCAA Top 25 poll that was released on Monday afternoon (Jan. 13).

NWU, now 13-2 overall, received 390 total points in this week’s poll to come in at No. 11.  Elmhurst moved up from No. 11 to No. 10 to pass the Prairie Wolves and enter the top 25.
