The stage is set for Tuesday night at the Sanford Pentagon as NW Missouri State will take on Augustana University for the chance to move on to the Elite 8.

Both of these teams were expected to be in this position and both had to win two games to get through the Central Regional to reach the finals on Tuesday.

Their most recent wins came on Sunday night with Augie defeating Nebraska Kearney 77-67 and NW Missouri St. defeated Minnesota State 82-60.

Augustana garnered the #1 seed and hosting duties and that will probably play dividends as the crowd will certainly be pro Augustana.

Northwest Missouri State is the #2 seed in the Central Region.

Game time is 7:00 PM on Tuesday, March 15th at the Sanford Pentagon.
