UMHB will face Webster, ETBU will face Rhodes and HSU battles Trinity in the first round. Really impressive that the ASC got 3 teams in this year. I don't believe that has ever happened.

Yes, back in the day.
I believe that it was 2004 that McMurry hosted HPU, HSU and Trinity TX.

Oh ok. I was wondering if it was one of those years that HPU made the tournament. If that was the way it was done this year, UMHB, ETBU, HSU and Trinity would've all been in the same pod. Good to see they spread them out to different areas of the bracket, putting HSU and Trinity on one side, and UMHB and ETBU on the other.

+1!

Yes, it is almost worth going on the road to get out of the ASC for the post-season.  It would be nice to have 2 teams in the final 16.

In 2008, McMurry hosted and beat Trinity TX (the SCAC champion) in the 1st round of a 3-team bracket.  HPU beat McMurry in the "Mausoleum" in the 2nd round.

https://www.d3hoops.com/teams/Howard_Payne/Women/2007-08/index.

McMurry went 25-5 that year. They beat St Thomas MN (which made the playoffs from the MIAC), and USA South Champion and Pool A winner Greensboro. They lost to Birmingham-Southern which still had scholarship players and was transitioning from D-1. The other 4 losses were to HPU, the undefeated national champion.

McMurry finished #11 in the final poll, 1 vote behind #10 Simpson.

Sam Nichols had some very strong McMurry teams in the late 1990's and 2000's.

The ASC also had great coaches with Julie Goodenough at HSU and Chris Kielsmeier at HPU.

UMHB defeated ETBU tonight. The scoreboard is incorrect. The score should be reversed.

Yep, big win for the Cru. Dominated in just about every aspect of the game, especially in the second half. Final was UMHB, 75, ETBU, 57, not the other way around  ;)

UMHB heads to the Sweet 16 for the third straight year that the NCAA Tournament has been held. The Cru will be joined by Transylvania, Trine and Springfield in Lexington tomorrow. Here's all you need to know about all 4 teams in the Lexington sectional pod:
