#8 Raider women play tonight

@SOURaiders @SOU_WBB

The first round of the CCC tourney begins tonight in Ashland at 7 p.m. The 25-3 Raiders are already a lock for the 2015 NAIA National Women’s Basketball Tournament, which begins March 11 in Sioux City, Iowa, but a strong showing in the CCC tournament can earn them one of the top seeds (and possibly weaker opponents in the early rounds) in the national tournament.

A win tonight against College of Idaho will give them another home game in the second round of the conference tourney on Friday. More details can be found here.

P.S. The rankings just came out and SOU is still at #8. Only one other team with 3 or fewer loses is outside of the top four. There is probably some middle-of-the-country bias against teams in the west (like in the NAIA football rankings which tend to penalize Frontier Conference teams) so the Raiders will need to prove themselves at the national tournament.
