Georgetown (KY) is third in the poll with 99 voting points. The Tigers ended last season with a 15-7 record, including an 11-5 record in the Mid-South Conference and an appearance in the tournament final last season.
Campbellsville (KY) is picked fourth in the poll with 89 points followed by Tennessee Southern with 74 points. Shawnee State (Ohio) is slotted sixth in the poll with 64 points, Cumberland (TN) is right behind with 59 points and Cumberlands (KY) comes in at eighth after earning 50 points.
