On the women's side, CBU secured the No. 2 seed after defeating Dixie State 96-85 on Saturday to close out the regular season with a 15-11 overall record, 13-7 in conference action. The Lancers' first test will be against the winner of Hawai'i Hilo and Hawai'i Pacific, scheduled for a Friday 5:30 p.m. tipoff.
Both teams will need to win their semifinal matchups in order to advance to the tournament championships, held Saturday at 5:00 p.m. for the men and 7:45 p.m. for the women. Winners of the tournament will get an automatic bid to the NCAA Division II National Tournament, beginning next week.
