MILWAUKEE (WLCSports.com) – Fresh off its second straight Northern Athletics Collegiate Conference Tournament championship and eighth in the last nine years, the Wisconsin Lutheran College women's basketball team has received the conference's automatic bid to the 2019 NCAA Division III Women's Basketball Championship Tournament. The Warriors will find out their first-round opponent and destination Monday, February 25 at 1:30 p.m. when the NCAA unveils the 64-team bracket during its selection show on NCAA.com.

Fans are invited to join the team in the college's Warrior Underground located in the lower level of the Campus Center, when the NCAA unveils the 64-team tournament field at 1:30 p.m. on NCAA.com. The tournament begins Friday, March 1 with 32 first-round games at 16 on-campus sites.

The Warriors are headed to their 10th NCAA Tournament in program history after winning the NACC Tournament Final 67-47 over third-seeded Concordia Wisconsin Saturday night, powered by a season-high 30 points from senior Jen Dowden (Bonduel, Wis.), who became the program's all-time leading scorer in the win. Wisconsin Lutheran, which has posted 10 20-win seasons, enters tournament play with a 26-1 overall record, tied for the most wins in a season in program history.
