Cougar women host St. Scholastica to open tournament
Finishing the season 12-2 in Upper Midwest Athletic Conference play, the University of Minnesota, Morris earned a share of their third straight UMAC title.
The Cougars will open the UMAC Tournament on Wednesday as the No. 2 seed, with Martin Luther as the top-seed.
With the two teams splitting during the regular season and equal through every set of tiebreakers, the tournament seeding came down to a coin flip, which the Knights won.
If the Cougars do have to go to New Ulm to win a championship game, it won't be uncharted waters, as they went on the road to beat the Knights on Feb. 3.
The Cougars will host the last team that beat them in third-seeded St. Scholastica. However, in their latest meeting Friday, it was the Cougars coming out with the 77-54 win.
The Cougars' run of dominance over the last three seasons has included a 39-3 record in conference play, regular season and tournament titles, and back-to-back NCAA Tournament appearances.
The two teams will tip-off at 7:30 on Jim Gremmels Court
