Bellarmine still #1 in Midwest Region, Selection Sunday is this week

Knights men's basketball holds firm at No. 1 in Midwest Region rankings

3/1/2017 | Men's Basketball

LOUISVILLE, Ky. - As fully expected, the Bellarmine University men's basketball team remained at No. 1 in the third set of Midwest Region rankings.

The Knights, who capped the regular season with a victory over archrival Southern Indiana, are now directly in front of No. 2 Ferris State, which jumped USI. Quincy is No. 4 after the Screaming Eagles followed by Kentucky Wesleyan, Findlay, Truman State, Wisconsin-Parkside, Lake Superior State and Wayne State.

The regional rankings are important because they help determine seeds for the NCAA Tournament. In Division II, the 64-team format is divided into eight regions and teams must compete within their region. Teams awarded the No. 1 seed in each region are awarded the right to host their regional.

This is the final set of regional rankings that will be unveiled before the NCAA Tournament.
