Eagles Proceed to Conference Tournaments

Following a strong season, the Lady Eagles have qualified for the NAIA Division One Independent Conference Tournament March 7 – 9 in Atlanta, Ga., a first for Northern basketball.

The Lady Eagles, who achieved NAIA Division I status in 2013, have qualified for the conference final less then a year after obtaining the new classification. Northern will play alongside Allen University and Morris College of South Carolina, California State University-San Marco, West Virginia Tech, and Land Lindenwood-Bellevue College of Illinois.

The men’s team has qualified for the NAIA Division Two Independents Conference Tournament at Ashford University February 28 to March 1 in Clinton, Iowa, marking the third time in four years that the men have qualified. They finished 3rd in the regular season, the highest Division II ranking in Northern history. The Eagles will take on Rochester University at the tournament, among others.

The men’s game will be broadcast live from the gym or can be streamed live at www.ashfordathletics.com. Details for the women’s game to come.

Good luck to both teams, and thanks to all for a great season!
