Georgia Military, East Mississippi top NJCAA poll

SCOOBA —     With little surprise, Georgia Military College (11-0) and East Mississippi Community College (11-0) finished No. 1 and No. 2 respectively in the National Junior College Athletic Association’s final regular season poll.

    The two teams are the only undefeated teams in the poll and both came off of dominating performances over the weekend with East Mississippi taking down previously rated No. 4 Jones County Junior College, 61-24, on Saturday and Georgia Military easily handling Lackawanna College, 63-18, on Sunday.

    East Mississippi made up ground on Georgia Military by earning a fourth first-place vote in this week’s poll but was not able to overtake the Bulldogs for for the No. 1 spot. Both teams are expected to be invited to play for the national championship in the Mississippi Bowl on Dec. 8 when NJCAA bowl bids are announced Tuesday.

    No. 3 Iowa Western Community College (11-1), idle last week, needed a loss from either Georgia Military or East Mississippi to earn a spot in the national title game and remained at the third spot this week.

    Jones County (9-2) fell four places to No. 8 following its loss to East Mississippi. In total, the Mississippi Association of Community and Junior Colleges placed five teams in the rankings as No. 9 Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College, No. 11 Copiah Lincoln Community College and No. 14 Hinds Community College rounded out the poll.
