Perfect HPU advances to Final Four

by

The perfect 31-0 Lady Jackets from HPU advanced the Final Four last weekend. Cory alerted me to the fact and Kalie Lowrie sent me a schedule of the upcoming games as well as a link to listen via the internet. I appreciate the info. Apparently the HPU women are the only undefeated basketball team in the college ranks. That’s quite a feat.

Here’s all you need to know to follow the Lady Jackets. Is anyone going to the games? Maybe someone else is looking for a carpool.

The Lady Jackets advance to the 2008 NCAA Division III Final Four in Holland, Michigan with a victory over No. 1 ranked Hope College, Saturday, March 15, in the Brownwood Coliseum.

Howard Payne enters the semifinals with a 31-0 record and will face Wisconsin-Whitewater (28-3), Friday, March 21 at 6:30 p.m. (CT). The Howard Payne radio broadcast can be found by clicking here

The third place game will be played Saturday, March 22, 2:30 p.m. (C.T). The national championship game is scheduled for a 5:00 p.m. (CT) tip off, Saturday, March 22.
