The Prairie Fire women’s basketball team will be traveling to Ripon for the Midwest Conference Tournament on February 24 and 25. Knox will be making their fourth trip to the tourney in the last five seasons.
The #2 Prairie Fire will battle #3 seed Cornell in the opening round on Friday at 7:00 p.m. The winner of that game will continue on to play the winner of Ripon and Illinois College for the championship on Saturday at 3:00 p.m.
Knox finished the regular season as co-champions with Ripon, but lost out on hosting due to a tiebreaking coin flip after all other tiebreakers had been exhausted. The Prairie Fire finished 15-1 in conference play with their only loss coming at the hands of Ripon on the final day of the regular season.
Knox won a program record 20 regular season games and snapped a program best 14 game winning streak last Saturday.
Join us in sending off the team on Thursday at 8:00 a.m. in front of T. Fleming Fieldhouse as the team departs for Ripon.
