DII Conference Tournament Watch

DII Conference Tournament Watch

By naiahoopsreport_admin February 10, 2020 0 Comments

We decided to have some fun by updating the Conference Tournament Brackets, headed into a BIG week as DII teams finish the last sprint towards the finish line. A lot of research and work went into this segment, and we looked through all of the conference by-laws and believe we have all of the tie breakers correct. We plan to update each of the next two weeks as the regular season comes to an end.


Appalachian Athletic Conference

  • 8 Teams Qualify for AAC Tournament
    • It was a BIG week for Montreat as their win coupled with a Union loss, moves them into 1st place. While it seems that Montreat or Union are going to win the AAC Regular season title, the fight for the 8th and final seed in the AAC Tournament is going to come down to the final game. CIU, Point, Bluefield, Bryan, Kentucky Christian, and Tennessee Wesleyan are all separated by just 1 game. Only 4 of those 6 teams will qualify for the AAC Tournament.
    • Current Matchups:
      • 1. Montreat (15-5) vs 8. Kentucky Christian (11-10)
      • 2. Union (14-6) vs 7. Bluefield (11-10)
      • 3. Milligan (13-7) vs 6. Point (11-9)
      • 4. Allen (13-9) vs 5. Columbia International (11-9)

Association of Independent Institutions

  • 8 Teams Qualify for Aii Tournament
    • This was one of the hardest to dig up information on, so we hope we have this one correct. Based off of overall record, and then by head to head as tie breakers, we have Washington Adventist who should come away with the overall #1 seed still. Voorhees is nipping at their feet, and just beat them last week, but Washington Adventist still controls their fate. Holy Family and Crowley’s Ridge are in a battle for the 8 seed, but Crowley’s Ridge beat Holy Family, so we gave them the tie breaker.
    • Current Matchups:
      • 1. Washington Adventist (21-7) vs 8. Crowley’s Ridge (9-15)
      • 2. Voorhees (16-8) vs 7. Haskell (13-13)
      • 3. College of Ozarks (15-10) vs 6. Lincoln (16-12)
      • 4. Fisher (15-11) vs 5. Penn St. – Schuylkill (11-10)

California Pacific Conference

  • 4 Teams Qualify for CAL PAC Tournament
    • Antelope Valley is running away with the 1 seed, but the rest of the seeding is WIDE open, as 2-7 are all separated by just 2 games. This will make for a fun sprint to the finish, as almost every game will have big implications headed down the stretch.
    • Current Matchups:
      • 1. Antelope Valley (10-0) vs 4. Simpson (6-4)
      • 2. UC Merced (6-4) vs 3. Cal Maritime (6-4)

Cascade Collegiate Conference

  • 8 Teams qualify for the CCC Touranment
    • #3 College of Idaho sits 3 games up right now for the CCC regular season championship. The seeding behind them could get really interesting as teams jockey for position these last couple of weeks. Multnomah currently holds a 2 game lead over the 9th place Walla Walla with 4 games to go.
    • Current Matchups:
      • 1. College of Idaho (16-0) vs 8. Multnomah (6-10)
      • 2. Southern Oregon (14-3) vs 7. Eastern Oregon (6-9)
      • 3. Northwest (11-4) vs 6. Warner Pacific (8-8)
      • 4. Oregon Tech (9-6) vs. 5. Northwest Christian (9-7)

Chicagoland Collegiate Athletic Conference

  • 8 Teams Qualify for CCAC Tournament
    • Olivet Nazarene and Holy Cross remain tied for 1st place, but remain 3 games up on Indiana-South Bend. At the back end of the conference tournament Governors St currently holds a 1 game lead on Roosevelt for that 8th and final seed
    • Current Matchups:
      • 1. Olivet Nazarene (16-2) vs. 8. Governors St (9-9)
      • 2. Holy Cross (16-2) vs. 7. Indiana Northwest (10-8)
      • 3. Indiana South Bend (13-6) vs. 6. Robert Morris (IL) (10-8)
      • 4. Saint Xavier (12-6) vs. 5. St. Ambrose (11-7)

Crossroads League

  • 8 Teams Qualify for Crossroads Tournament
    • This race remains tight between Indiana Wesleyan and Marian, as Marian sits 1 game back with 4 regular season games left. Grace currently sits in 3rd place by themselves, but the 3-6 teams are currently separated by just 2 games. All of these playoff seeds are open for grabs, and it is going to be a great sprint home to end the regular season.
    • Current Matchups:
      • 1. Indiana Wesleyan (12-2) vs. Huntington (5-9)
      • 2. Marian (11-3) vs. 7. Mount Vernon Nazarene (6-8)

Great Plains Athletic Conference

  • 8 Teams Qualify for GPAC Tournament
    • Morningside has already locked up the GPAC Regular Season Championship, but this is another league with a log jam in the middle of the pack. The 3-7 teams in this league are within 2 games of one-another, and with just 4 games left in the regular season, there is going to be some intriguing matchups for seeding purposes.
    • Current Matchups:
      • 1. Morningside (16-2) vs. 8. Hastings (6-10)
      • 2. Dakota Wesleyan (11-5) vs. 7. Concordia (8-8)

Kansas Collegiate Athletic Conference

  • 8 Teams Qualify for KCAC Tournament

      • 1. Ottawa (15-5) vs 8. Avila (8-10)
      • 2. Oklahoma Wesleyan (14-6) vs. 7. Southwestern
      • 3. McPherson (14-7) vs. 6. Kansas Wesleyan (13-7)

North Star Athletic Association

  • 8 Teams Qualify for NSAA Tournament
    • Bellevue beat Mayville St. this week to help them move into 1st place for the North Star Regular Season Title. Most of the teams in the league have 3 games left, and right now there is a 3 way tie for 3rd between Viterbo, Waldorf, and Dickinson State. The Top 2 seeds Bellevue, and Mayville St. still have one more game between the two, and that could dictate who wins the regular season title.
    • Current Matchups:
      • 1. Bellevue (9-1) vs. 8. Presentation (0-11)
      • 2. Mayville St. (8-2) vs. 7. Dakota State (4-7)

Point Park, Ohio Christian, and Rio Grande are in a 3 way battle for the last 2 spots in the Conference Tournament. On the West, IU Kokomo remains 1 game up on IU Southeast.

    • The Wolverine-Hoosier Athletic Conference has some sorting out to do yet as they have a 3 team race going on for the conference title. Madonna currently sits just a half game back of both Lourdes and Indiana Tech. 4-7 in this conference is also going to be fun to watch as Rochester, Cornerstone, Sienna Heights, and UM-Dearborn are all just 1 game apart. Concordia currently holds the tiebreaker for the 8th spot over UNOH, and the WHAC is currently in a mad scramble to the finish line!
    • Current Matchups:
