After finishing 16-6 in the WHAC regular season, the No. 25 Cornerstone women's basketball team finished second in the Wolverine-Hoosier Athletic Conference and are the number two seed heading into the conference tournament.
After dropping their only conference game to the Golden Eagles, the No. 2 Davenport Panthers claimed the regular season basketball title heading into the 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 (March 12-18) 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.
Following behind Davenport and Cornerstone is Siena Heights and Indiana Tech grabbing third and fourth place seeds and the opportunity to host the first round game on Thursday, Feb. 27 at 7:30 p.m. The Golden Eagles will host Concordia University, the number seven seed, for the first round game on Thursday night. Cornerstone will face the winner of Thursday's Siena Heights/UNOH contest on Saturday, March 1 for the semi-final game if they be Concordia. The Wolverine-Hoosier Athletic Conference Championship will take place on Tuesday, March 4 with the game being played at the higher seed's home court.
Under first year Head Coach, Katie Mattera, Cornerstone fell in the first round to the Madonna Crusaders last season. The Golden Eagles are eager to get back to the hard court for redemption from last season.
