Central Missouri State Uuniversity (40-13) finished 2nd in the MIAA Conference, ending their run of 12 straight regular season conference titles broken.. That means for the first time in a long time, they have to travel outside of Warrensburg to play in the MIAA Tournament. The Mules face third-seeded Missouri Western (30-21) in the first round of the conference tourney Friday night. Emporia St. won the regular season conference title and gets the automatic bid from the MIAA in the NCAA Division II Regionals next week. This year, the conference decided to let the regular season champ get the bid. The MIAA Tournament is in Manhattan, Kansas because Emporia St. had a scheduling conflict on its campus.
