LEVELLAND, Texas - The South Plains College Texan basketball team's undefeated record has helped them to receive 14-of-16 first place votes and the No. 1 ranking in the NJCAA basketball polls released Tuesday afternoon.

South Plains (18-0, 3-0 WJCAC) began the season with a No. 18 national ranking in the pre-season poll, but quickly sped up to No. 7 in the November 15 poll after knocking off ranked opponents Trinity Valley and Lamar State-Port Arthur in the second weekend of the season.  

They then spent two weeks at No. 6 before heading into Christmas as the fourth-ranked team in the country.

In the three polls released since Christmas the Texans have moved up each time.  They opened up at No. 3 on January 10, moved up to No. 2 January 17, and now own the top spot heading into Thursday's WJCAC match-up at New Mexico Junior College.
