GREAT AMERICAN TEAM PREVIEWS

GREAT AMERICAN TEAM PREVIEWS: With defending National Champion and Great American Champion, Pitt State no longer in Division 2, the door is wide open for a new champion.  This region has been all shaken up after the addition of 2 brand new NCBA teams, a 2019 D3 team, and all of the former Rocky Lone Star South conference.  Creighton and Oklahoma State are still around, the #1 and #3 seeds in the Regional a year ago, and they look to repeat as conference champion.
