Findlay wins first-ever NCAA tournament game, advances to play top seed

The University of Findlay women’s basketball team advanced to the second round of the NCAA Division II Midwest Regional Tournament with a 54-51 win over the University of Wisconsin-Parkside on Saturday in Houghton, Michigan.

The Oilers, who improved to 22-8, got a huge rebound from Norwalk’s Megan Sellers, who snatched a rebound and was sent to the line for free throws with 10 seconds left. Sellers made the front end, but missed the second, giving Wisconsin-Parkside a last attempt at tying the game and sending it into overtime but their triple try was off the mark.

Amherst’s Audra Mihalic scored 12 points, while Sellers added five points and eight rebounds.

The Oilers will be back in action again Sunday when they face top-seeded Michigan Technological University at 4 p.m. for a chance to reach the Sweet 16.
