The ThunderWolves have drawn the eighth and lowest seed in the North Central region, pitting them against the one-seed University South Dakota, the regional host for the NCAA Division II national tournament, the NCAA announced Sunday night.
South Dakota, 28-1 won the North Central Conference, beating North Dakota in the championship game Sunday.
The ThunderWolves earned an automatic bid by taking the RMAC Championship Saturday. Despite that, two of the teams the ThunderWolves defeated, Fort Lewis and Nebraska-Kearney, each received higher seeds in the regional (number-four and number-five, respectively), and will play one another in the first round of the national tournament. If the ThunderWolves are able to defeat South Dakota, they will take on the winner of the Fort Lewis/Kearney matchup.
