The regular basketball season is wrapping up for W-P-U with one game left on the men and women's schedules. The Statesmen had to knock off Viterbo Wednesday night to solidify their chances for a top seed in the men's conference tournament.
The William Penn University men's basketball squad took down rival Grand View, 94-75, in the Midwest Collegiate Conference Tournament Championship. The win gave the Statesmen an automatic berth to the NAIA Division II Men's Basketball Championship Tournament where they will take on Dordt College.
It's almost conference tourney time for William Penn. The men and women are looking to go the distance with their MCC foes, but first they had one regular season game against Grand View on their schedule.
The Midwest Collegiate Conference Tournament has begun, throwing the regular season records out the window and starting from scratch. The road to the conference final began at home Wednesday night for the second seed Statesmen as the seventh seed AIB Eagles rolled into Oskaloosa.
