October 30, 2010

Carlos Emory (32) hopes to lead the Howard College Hawks to another national championship this season.

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — Since 2005, NJCAA's Region 5/District 5 has won three national titles and appeared in four championship games.
Thus, it is no wonder why the top two programs from Region 5 top this year's NJCAA Division I Men's Basketball Preseason Poll.

Midland College, which won the 2007 title and was runner-up in 2009, and defending national champion Howard College come into this season ranked No. 1 and No. 2, respectively, which is just par for the course.
Last season the two programs were both ranked in the Top 10 for the last eight weeks of the season and ranked 1-2 in the final poll.

Two Region 14 teams — Navarro College and San Jacinto — also are ranked. Navarro weighed in at No. 6 and San Jacinto at No. 11.

Two other Region 5 teams also are in the mix — McLennan College of Waco at No. 17 and South Plains College of Levelland at No. 22.
