By virtue of finishing in second place during the Heart of America Athletic Conference regular season, the No. 14 Culver-Stockton College men’s basketball team is ensured a spot in next week's Buffalo Funds-NAIA Division I National Tournament. The program has announced that it will hold an NAIA Tournament Selection Show Watch Party on Wednesday, March 12, at Meader's Lounge inside the Gladys Crown Student Center. 

The party will begin at 7:30 p.m. and both fans and media are welcome to attend. C-SC head coach Jack Schrader and student-athletes will be available to the media following the announcement, which is scheduled to begin at 8 p.m. Light snacks and drinks will be available.

At 23-7, the Wildcats will be making their second straight tournament appearance under the direction of Schrader. The Wildcats made their first appearance in the national tournament in 54 years last season, winning two games and advancing to the quarterfinals before bowing out with a loss to eventual national champion Georgetown (Ky.) College.

Once the date and time of the Wildcats’ game is revealed, ticket and fan bus information will be disclosed. The Buffalo Funds-NAIA Division I Men’s Basketball Tournament is scheduled to run March 19-25 at Municipal Auditorium in Kansas City, Mo.
