Lady Knights Earn #1 Seed at National Championship Tournament
The Lady Knights Basketball team has earned the overall #1 seed in the NCCAA-II National Championship Tournament being played at Ozark Christian College in Joplin, Missouri. The Lady Knights are currently 17-10 on the season, having lost only one game to another NCCAA-II team. KCU was the pre-season #1 team in the NCCAA-II rankings, and held that ranking for all but 3 weeks of the season. They ended the year as the #1 team, and proceeded to win the Mid-East Region Tournament this past weekend, beating Ohio Christian University, seeded #2 in the region and nationally as well.
Below is the schedule for the first day of the tournament, converted to Eastern Standard Time:
3:00 PM #1 Kentucky Christian University vs #8 North Central University (Minneapolis, MN)
5:00 PM #4 Arlington Baptist College (Arlington, TX) vs #5 Lancaster Bible College (Lancaster, PA)
7:00 PM #2 Ohio Christian University (Circleville, OH) vs #7 Maranatha Baptist University (Watertown, WI)
9:00 PM #3 Manhattan Christian College (Manhattan, KS) vs #6 Pensacola Christian College (Pensacola, FL)
If the Lady Knights are victorious on Thursday, they will play the winner of the 5 PM game on Friday at 7 PM. With Mid-East Region rival Ohio Christian University as the overall #2 seed, it is possible that the opponent from the regional championship game could be the National Championship opponent as well.
