Westmont is pretty stout defensively giving up on average 53.23 points per game, third best in the NAIA whilst the Lady Rams are pretty good offensively averaging 76.5 points per game, ninth best in the NAIA. The winner of this game will meet the winner of the four seed Talladega of Alabama (23-5) and five seed Lindsey Wilson of Kentucky (26-6) game.
This is the Lady Rams second time in school history being invited to the national tournament! You will be able to live stream the game on naianetwork.com for a small fee and may listen to the games for free on www.ftsr.voicewerk.com
