Men’s Basketball Headed to Nationals

Although they didn’t make it past the first round in the Conference Tournament, the Statesmen Basketball team will advance to NAIA Division II National Tournament.

Since Losing to #7 seed, Grand View last Wednesday, Penn was left to do only one thing; root for a St. Ambrose Conference Tournament victory. Penn was ranked #2 going into the tournament so If the #1 (St. Ambrose) won the championship, Penn would also get a bid to Nationals.

Penn’s season revival occurred mid Sunday evening when they learned the outcome of the Conference Tournament Championship. St. Ambrose glided into the first MCC National spot with a  84-54 victory over Grand View.

The NAIA Division II Tournament runs from March 7-13 in Point Lookout, Missouri. The Statesmen are one of 32 teams competing. Penn will find out when the play sometime in the next couple of days.
