Freed-Hardeman’s Lady Lions occupied the top spot in the NAIA in the Division I Women's Basketball Coaches’ Poll released Feb. 19. FHU edged out Oklahoma City by one point to retain their number one ranking. With only one loss to spoil a perfect record, the Lady Lions have posted a 27-1 overall record and are undefeated in the TranSouth.
A win Feb. 16 over Mid-Continent clinched the regular season conference championship for the fourth time in program history. Two non-conference games remain on the schedule before the conference tournament.
The top billing is the third in program history for Freed-Hardeman, which held the No. 1 spot for two weeks in the 2011-12 season. FHU and OCU are the only two schools to appear in every poll since the beginning of the 1999-2000 season.
