Seven Teams Vying for Six Tournament Spots in Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference

In the Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference (HCAC), each team has one game remaining in the regular season and seven teams are currently vying for six available spots in the conference tournament.

Transylvania University (12-12, 9-8 HCAC) is one of two teams in the running for the final tournament spot.

Here's a breakdown...

Our Team of Interest: Transylvania University

Current HCAC Standings:

x Mount St. Joseph 14-3 19-5
x Defiance 13-4 18-6
x Anderson 12-5 13-11
x Rose-Hulman 10-7 14-10
Bluffton 9-8 13-11
x Hanover 9-8 12-12
Transylvania 9-8 12-12
Franklin 4-13 5-19
Manchester 4-13 5-19
Earlham 1-16 1-23

x - clinched spot in postseason tournament

Saturday's games:

3:00 p.m. Mount St. Joseph at Rose-Hulman
3:00 p.m. Anderson at Earlham
4:00 p.m. Defiance at Franklin
4:00 p.m. Bluffton at Transylvania
5:00 p.m. Manchester at Hanover

What Transylvania needs: Obviously, the easy answer is a win over Bluffton. Hanover has already clinched a berth by virtue of head-to-head games, which leaves one spot for either Transy or Bluffton. Saturday's game in Lexington will be a "play-in" game for the conference tournament.
