N'western, M'side women force 4-way tie for GPAC title; GPAC tournament pairings


Northwestern will be the number one seed when the 2014 Great Plains Athletic Conference (GPAC) Women's Postseason Basketball Tournament begins on Wednesday, February 26. 

The Red Raiders went 16-4 in the league and shared a four-way conference title with Hastings, Morningside, and Concordia (all at four at 16-4 in the GPAC).  As the number one seed (after GPAC tiebreakers) the Red Raiders have secured an automatic berth to the NAIA Women's Division II National Tournament in Sioux City which runs March 12-18 at the Tyson Events Center. 

Hastings is the two seed, Morningside is the three seed, and Concordia is the fourth seed.  All four teams will receive trophies, marking the second time in GPAC women's basketball history that the league has had quad-champions (2007). 

Midland is the fifth seed, Dakota Wesleyan is sixth, Doane is seeded seventh, and Briar is the eighth seed.

The semifinals are on Saturday, March 1, at the highest two remaining seeds.  GPAC Championship Tuesday, sponsored by Rawlings, will be on Tuesday, March 4.

The GPAC Postseason Champion garners an automatic berth to the NAIA National Basketball Tournament (the runner-up gains the berth if the regular season champion (top seed Northwestern) wins the postseason).
