The Ashland University women's basketball team claimed their second consecutive GLIAC tournament championship with a 68-49 win over Findlay to improve to 31-1 on the season.  Now that the GLIAC tournament is finished, AU will now focus on the NCAA Division II regionals which again will be hosted by Ashland's Kates Gymnasium on March 15th, 16th and the championship game on Monday the 18th at 7pm.  The Eagles are the top seed.

Ashland will play Indianapolis in their first round game on Friday at 6pm.   The two teams met earlier this season with the Eagles winning 70-54 back on December 14th.  Should they win, they'll come back and play on Saturday at 7:30 against the Kentucky Wesleyan/Michigan Tech winner.  This is AU's fourth trip to the NCAA regional tourney, all of them coming under coach Sue Ramsey.  The Eagles go into the tournament ranked #2 in the country behind #1 Clayton State.  Other teams involved in the NCAA regional tournament at AU are Findlay, Wayne State, Wisconsin Parkside and Lewis.  The Eagles beat Parkside last season at Kates Gymnasium to win the 2012, D-2 regional championship. 

The NCAA regional champion will play in the Elite Eight at Bill Greehey Arena in San Antonio, Texas, March 26, 27 and 29.  A year ago, AU finished as NCAA Division II national runner-up to Shaw at 33-2.
