Minnesota State Moorhead is ranked No. 3 in the Central Region in this week’s NCAA Division II women’s basketball regional rankings.

The top eight teams in each of the eight regions make the Division II national tournament, which starts on March 13.

“The regional are truly the only ones at this point other than your conference standings,” MSUM head coach Karla Nelson said.

The Dragons (14-4, 7-4 NSIC) are one of eight Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference teams ranked in the top 10 of the regional rankings. Minnesota State Mankato is ranked No. 1 in the region.

“It basically just shows the strength of the NSIC overall as a conference,” Nelson said.

Regional rankings will be released every Wednesday through March 4. The tournament selections will be made on March 8.
