Tournament pairings to be announced
WAXAHACHIE, Texas -- The National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics will announce the 32-team field for next week's national tournament in a special on-line presentation tonight (March 6).
Southwestern Assemblies of God University (29-4) will among the teams in the battle to determine the NAIA 2013 champion. Who they will open against and when they will play their opener has yet to be determined.
Fans can watch the NAIA Selection Show tonight at 7:00pm (CST) at www.naia.org.
The teams will be seeded with the no. 1 seed taking on the 32nd rated squad. The Lions were ranked no. 6 in the country a week ago, which would have them facing the 27th seed.
This week's Top 25 Coaches Poll was to be released yesterday, but has yet to be made public. By losing in the finals of the Red River Athletic Conference tournament the Lions could possibly drop a few rungs on the national ladder.
