Championship Game Breakdown

After 5-seed Bryan ended Union’s 29 game AAC Tournament win streak, they will now look to carry that momentum into the AAC Tournament Championship today. 7-seed Columbia International has taken down both 2-seed Reinhardt and 3-seed Montreat on their way to the AAC Championship game. Maybe not the most conventional title game with a 5 vs 7 seed, but the AAC Regular Season Standings were pretty tight all year long 2-8. So it’s a big surprise Union isn’t playing today, but really, almost every other team in the AAC Tournament had shots to be in the Title game. DiAnthony Heathcock had 19pts in the semifinal game and he will be huge for CIU in this one. Darrian Oates went cold in the Semis, but was red hot in the QF’s. For Bryan, Ian Johnson continues to lead the Lions. The two teams split their regular season games. Winner gets the 2nd AAC auto-bid to the NAIA National Championships!
