Oklahoma Baptist dropped from first to fourth in the NAIA Men's Division I Basketball Coaches' Top 25 Poll after last month's loss to Evangel and two Sooner Athletic Conference victories.

OBU took over the No. 1 spot after beating preseason No. 1 Concordia and held the top spot in the poll for just over a month. The Bison have been ranked in 54 consecutive polls – the longest active streak.

Cumberlands of Kentucky takes over the No. 1 spot with a 15-1 record while unbeaten Columbia (16-0) and Lewis-Clark State (18-0) are Nos. 2 and 3, respectively.

Also making the Top 25 from the Sooner Athletic Conference are No. 9 USAO, No. 19 Rogers State, No. 22 Oklahoma City and No. 25 John Brown. The Bison play at Rogers State Thursday and host USAO Saturday.
