The Ohio Northern men’s basketball team (19-9) could have a shot at being an at-large bid to this year’s NCAA Tournament, Div. III basketball analysts from D3hoops.com said on their live Hoopsville mock selection show on Sunday night.

With a thrilling double-overtime win at Marietta on Saturday, the 24th-ranked ONU women’s basketball team clinched their fourth straight OAC regular season championship. Now, they must pivot quickly to the OAC Tournament, which will likely pose as a ‘must-win’ situation for the Polar Bears.

Despite their 21-4 overall record, national ranking and regular season conference title, Ohio Northern will likely need to win the OAC Tournament this week -- or at least make it to the championship game -- to qualify for their third straight NCAA Tournament.

The way volleyball works, there are very little breaks come tournament time. The opening weekend consists of three rounds, played on consecutive days, in which eight teams arrive to a regional destination but only one makes it out alive.

Making it out of the first weekend is a draining endeavor. Coaches must prepare for three different opponents in three days, with less than 24 hours in between each match and each opponent tougher than the last. Players must perform at their peak on short rest, staying mentally sharp during the biggest weekend of their volleyball careers.
