Lady Knights Season On the Line in Consolation Bracket

The North Platte Community College Lady Knights resume play in the consolation bracket at the NJCAA Division II National Tournament in East Peoria, Illinois today. After a 63-35 loss to top-seed Mesa Community College in round one on Tuesday, the Lady Knights drop into the eight-team losers bracket and can finish as high as seventh nationally with three straight wins. One more loss, however, is season-ending. This afternoon, the Lady Knights take on Iowa Central Community College. The Tritons are the eighth seed in the 16-team tourney. They fell to Monroe College 87-84 in their first round contest on Tuesday afternoon. A win for the Lady Knights today would be their first in two trips to the national tournament. Tipoff between the Lady Knights and the Tritons is set for 11 AM.
