Posted Jan 14, 2020 8:02 PM

After playing more than 28 seasons of Division II basketball without being ranked 13th in the country, the Fort Hays State women's basketball team now occupies that spot in the WBCA Coaches Poll for the second week in a row, announced Tuesday.

The Tigers (13-2, 4-2 MIAA) picked up three wins since the last poll was released, holding off Pittsburg State at home before earning a pair of road victories over Northeastern State and Rogers State. FHSU's point total in the balloting process rose three points this week, up to 310.

Emporia State, the lone other MIAA representative in the polls, moved up one spot to No. 15 in the coaches poll while holding on to the No. 16 spot in the media ranks.

The Tigers and Lady Hornets will face off in a top-15 battle Wednesday evening inside Gross Memorial Coliseum, with the opening tip set for 5:30 p.m.

Chiefs' Jones inactive for playoff game; Texans' Fuller OK

By DAVE SKRETTA, AP Sports Writer

The Kansas City Chiefs are without Pro Bowl defensive tackle Chris Jones for their divisional playoff game against the Houston Texans.

Jones hurt his calf in practice this week and struggled through pregame warm-ups. He leads the Chiefs in sacks.

Meanwhile, the Texans have Will Fuller for the first time since Week 16 after the speedy wide receiver was pronounced ready to go from a groin injury.

Fuller has been plagued by injuries this season, playing in just 11 of 16 regular-season games.
