The William Penn Statesmen men’s basketball team learned Wednesday (3/13) who they will face in the opening round of the NAIA Division I men’s tournament next week. The Statesmen are the sixth seed in their bracket and will play Vanguard of California. We asked Statesmen Coach John Henry about the draw.
“Six is about where we thought we would be. We play Wednesday at 6 against Vanguard. I like our draw.”
The Statesmen take a 21-11 record into the nationals, while Vanguard is 25-6. Again, William Penn’s men play next Wednesday night (3/20) at 6:30pm in Kansas City.
