Tonight, the Mules of UCM captured the MIAA conference tournament title with their third consecutive overtime game, defeating Missouri Western 86-84. This was the first time any team had played three overtime games in the tournament much less winning all three.
This means the Mules finished the season at 26-4, which secured them the top seed in the South Central region for the NCAA Division II basketball tournament. They also will be hosting the regional as the top seed.
Congratulations to the Mules basketball team. Here's to a long and enjoyable dance starting on the 16th!
