Knox Women's Basketball to Travel to Loras for Opening Round of NCAA Tournament

GALESBURG, Illinois - The Prairie Fire women’s basketball team is set to travel to Loras College to battle the Duhawks in the first round of the NCAA Tournament on March 3. Tip-off is set for 7:45 p.m. at the Lillis Athletic and Wellness Center on the Loras campus in Dubuque, Iowa.

Knox is 22-5 on the season, while the Duhawks enter the NCAA Tournament with a record of 23-4. Loras faced a similar situation to the Prairie Fire in their conference tournament as the number two seed to Wartburg, despite arguably being the better team. The Duhawks defeated Wartburg 72-61 in the American Rivers Conference Championship, while Knox defeated Ripon 64-61 to advance to the first round of the NCAA Tournament.

The winner will move on to play the winner of Washington University (St. Louis) and Trine on Saturday night at 7:30 p.m.
