King held on to the #6 spot in the final NCAA Southeast Region poll to be released before Sunday night's Selection Show for the NCAA Division II Men's Basketball Championship.

Erskine eliminated the Tornado in the first round of the Conference Carolinas Tournament on Monday night, forcing King to play the waiting game to see if they will earn an at-large bid to the NCAA Tournament.

The winners of Conference Carolinas, the Peach Belt and South Atlantic Conferences will receive an automatic bid to the Tournament, along with the next 5 highest ranked teams in the Southeast Region.  

The Conference Carolinas semi-finals will be played Thursday night, with the championship game on Saturday.  The Peach Belt conference tournament will begin on Friday and conclude Sunday, while the South Atlantic Tournament begins tonight and concludes Sunday.
