The NAIA revealed Tuesday that the Rams would enter this year's 32-team, single-elimination tournament as a No. 4 seed. They will play Graceland (Iowa), a No. 5 seed, March 15 at 5:45 p.m.
In order to repeat, head coach Brennen Shingleton's bunch will once again need to win five games in six days.
This season, the Rams finished with the second-best record in the Sooner Athletic Conference (14-6) and were ranked No. 15 in the final NAIA Coaches' Top 25 Poll. Last week, the team lost to Southwestern Assemblies of God University in the semifinals of the SAC Conference Tournament (89-79). SAGU is the No. 6 seed in Wesleyan's portion of the bracket.
This will mark the program's 16th appearance at the event. Texas Wesleyan also won the title in 2006.
