After a huge win in the NAIA national championship quarterfinals over Olivet Nazarene (Ill.), the Lancers are moving on to the Final Four!
The Lancers, now 25-10, are making Mount Marty history! With Saturday's win over No. 4 ranked ONU, the Lancers broke the school record for wins and also are the first MMC women's basketball team to reach the Elite 8 and now the Final Four of the national championships. A balanced attack and great passing were key factors for the game, as all 5 starters scored in double digits. ONU is known for their fast-paced playing style and continuous full court pressure, but the Lancers' passing and patience broke the press and helped the Lancers score just shy of 100 points on offense.
The Lancers will paly Marian (Ind.) in the NAIA Final Four (semifinals) on Monday, March 14 at 6:00 p.m. at the Tyson Events Center in Sioux City, Iowa.
