The Northwest University Eagles will face defending national champion Cornerstone (Mich.) in the NAIA Division II men's basketball tournament Wednesday at 8:15 a.m. Pacific time in Point Lookout, Mo.
Cornerstone is trying to become the first unseeded program in the 21-year history to win the tournament. Cornerstone took home its second overall title (it also won in 1999) last year and became the first No. 3 seed to win it all since 1996.
"We're excited to play tomorrow and ready to get things started," Eagles coach John Van Dyke said. "It's just reward for all of the players to be able to attend the tournament and represent our conference and our university. They've invested a great deal of time into this season."
