Pilots Begin Preparation for NAIA National Tournament
March 08, 2005
The seeding, game time, and opponent will be announced tomorrow afternoon, March 9th, at 6:00 pm. The Pilots are hard at work preparing for what they hope is a special ending to a special season.
The Pilots are hoping for a top 15 seed in the tournament after finishing the season ranked 7th in the national poll. "We feel our team earned the number seven ranking we received at the end of the regular season. Being our first time to be in the national tournament, we really don't know what to expect on the seeding. We know that there is a lot that goes into the seeding process, so we just trust that the committee will do the best job they know how to do. We must realize that there will be no easy match-ups at the national tournament. Therefore, we are not as concerned about our seed as much as focusing on playing our best basketball,” commented head coach Chad McDowell on the upcoming trip to Kansas City.
