Menlo women get an at-large bid to NAIA national tournament


The Menlo College women's basketball team received a reprieve from the NAIA and was awarded an at-large bid into the national championships that get underway on Wednesday at the Tyson Events Center in Sioux City, Iowa.

The 13th-ranked Oaks (22-5) were upset in the Cal Pac Conference tournament semifinal, 51-49, by UC Merced after going undefeated in the regular conference season.

Menlo enters the tournament as a No. 4 seed and will meet No. 5 seed Briar Cliff (23-9) at 10 a.m. PT Wednesday.

No. 19 Briar Cliff lost to top-ranked Morningside, 77-62, in the semifinals of the Great Plains Athletic Conference tournament, after finishing fourth in the regular season, to earn its 12th all-time trip to the National Championships.

Menlo won its fourth-straight Cal Pac regular season title this season and is making its seventh all-time appearance at the tournament.
