[December 06, 2013]  Lincoln Christian University will host the NCCAA Division II Midwest Regional Tip-Off tournament for women's basketball Friday and Saturday at the Laughlin Center. Competition begins at 2 p.m. on Friday and 11 a.m. on Saturday.

The tournament allows regional opponents to meet at a single location and play at least two games toward their regional record. The regional record is then used to determine seeding for the NCCAA regional championship tournament at the end of the season. Six teams will meet at the Laughlin Center this weekend for a chance to improve their seeding: Grace Bible College, Kuyper College, Lincoln Christian University, Maranatha Baptist Bible College, Moody Bible Institute and Northland International University.

The LCU Red Lions are looking forward to the opportunity.

"I'm really excited about how our team is progressing this year," said head coach Amanda Bowman, "We are returning our two leading scorers from last year, along with two other starters. Freshmen newcomers will add talent to the returners from last season."

In addition, the 12-member Red Lions team will showcase the size and athleticism of several players who are also volleyball team members and competed in the NCCAA Division II National Volleyball Tournament last month.

"Once we are able to get some time in the gym and build our chemistry, we should be a contender for the NCCAA Midwest Regional championship," Bowman added.

The event is free and open to the public. For more information, call 217-732-3168. ext. 2245, or click here.
