Dallas Baptist coach Blake Flickner was named the HoopDirt.com Division II National Coach of the Week and is now eligible to receive the HoopDirt.com National Coach of the Year Award.
Coach Flickner guided Dallas Baptist to back-to-back one point wins over Midwestern State this week. On Friday, the 15th-ranked Patriots knocked down a three with just under 40 seconds remaining to take an 81-80 victory. The following day, Dallas Baptist trailed by one with just 0.3 seconds remaining, but miraculously scored the game-winning basket on an alley-oop off an inbounds pass as time expired. The 91-90 victory moved the Patriots to 9-1 (9-1 LSC) on the season. They will look for their sixth straight win when they take on UT Permian Basin on the road on Friday.
