McMurry Opens NCAA D. III Championship Play on Friday vs. Whitworth


INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – McMurry University will take on Whitworth (Wash.) University on Friday (March 2) in its first round game of the 2012 NCAA Division III Men’s Basketball Championships. University of Mary Hardin-Baylor is the host site and plays Trinity (Texas) University. Tip-off for the McMurry-Whitworth game is slated for 5:30 p.m. in Belton. UMHB and Trinity follow at 7:30 p.m. The winners meet Saturday at 7 p.m.

The Pirates (24-3) are making a sixth-consecutive appearance in the NCAA III tournament, having also brought home the Northeast Conference title six-straight seasons, as well.

UMHB was one of 19 teams nationwide given a Pool C bid as an at-large team. The Crusaders have a 25-2 record, but both of its losses have come at the hands of McMurry. Trinity (20-8) earned the automatic bid from the Southern Collegiate Athletics Conference (SCAC).

McMurry defeated Hardin-Simmons University on Sunday afternoon to win its second-consecutive American Southwest Conference title and trip to the NCAA tournament.
