GRAND FORKS, N.D. – The University of North Dakota women's basketball team will be making its first-ever trip to the NCAA Division I Tournament, heading to Texas A&M to battle the 3-seed Aggies. UND, the Big Sky Conference Tournament winners and regular season co-champs, grabbed the 14 seed and will play the host Sunday night at 7:00 p.m CT on ESPN2.

North Dakota (22-9 overall), led by Big Sky Player of the Year senior Madi Buck and Big Sky Tournament MVP sophomore Mia Loyd, has doubled its win total from a season ago and is making just its second postseason appearance at the Division I level (2012- WBI).

UND made the transition to NCAA Division I in 2008-09 and is in its second season in the Big Sky. North Dakota had a long, storied history in the NCAA Division II tournament, including three national titles (1997, 1998, 1999).
