RedHawks Await At-Large Berth to Nationals

Fresh off a runner-up finish at the SSAC Women’s Basketball Championship, the Martin Methodist Women’s Basketball team will await a result from the selection committee to decide its 2016 postseason fate.


The RedHawks (22-11) figure to receive a nod from the committee as they boast one of the most impressive resumes of any possible at-large selection.


The RedHawks own three wins over Top 5 teams, most recently defeating No. 3 Bethel (Tenn.) in the conference tournament. The RedHawks also defeated Freed-Hardeman (Tenn.) on the road and Bethel again at home when those squads were ranked No. 2.


The RedHawks also own a victory over SSAC tournament champion Loyola (La.), which finished the regular season in the Top 25.


The 32-team field and bracket announcement will be made by the NAIA this afternoon at roughly 5 p.m.
