Whitworth draws Claremont-S-C at home in NCAA D-III Tournament

SPOKANE, Wash. - The bracket for the 60-team Division III men's basketball tournament was released Monday, with Whitworth hosting Clarement-Mudd-Scripps in the first round.

Whitworth finished the season 22-5, good enough for second place in the Northwest Conference.  The Stags from Claremont-M-S finished the regular season 21-6, winning the Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference championship.

The winner between WU and C-M-S travels to Tacoma to take on Puget Sound.

The Stags and the Pirates have somewhat of a history with each other.  Claremont-M-S handed Whitworth their first loss of the season earlier this year, beating them 73-68 in the semifinal round of the Lee Fulmer Classic at Redlands, California.

Whitworth's tournament game against the Stags is Thursday, March 5 at 7 p.m. at the Whitworth Fieldhouse.
