After finishing 13-9 in conference play, the Cornerstone women's basketball team finished fifth in the Wolverine-Hoosier Athletic Conference and are the number five seed heading into this weekend's league tournament.
Davenport and Concordia tied for the regular season basketball title but based on a tie breaker, Davenport heads into the conference tournament with the number one seed. With the top spot, Davenport receives the first WHAC automatic bid to the NAIA Division II Women's Basketball National Championship Tournament in Sioux City, Iowa. The winner of the WHAC tournament receives the second birth. Should Davenport also win the tournament, the tournament runner-up receives an automatic bid.
Cornerstone will head to Madonna University to take on the number four seed for the first round. The Golden Eagles will face the winner of Wednesday's Davenport/UNOH contest on Saturday, Feb. 23, for the semi-final game if they beat Madonna. The Wolverine-Hoosier Athletic Conference Championship will take place on Monday, Feb. 25, with the game being played at the higher seed's home court.
Last year, Cornerstone shot a poor first half against Siena Heights during the first round of the conference tournament which resulted in a 63-41 loss. The Golden Eagles are eager to get back to the hard court for redemption from their last season. The women will be lead by Cornerstone's three seniors Kathy DeYoung, Kayleigh Hammond, and Robyn Veltkamp.
