Lincoln women qualify for MIAA playoffs with win over Missouri Western

It’s official. The Lincoln women are going to the playoffs.

With a 68-56 victory Wednesday night over Missouri Western at Jason Gym, the Blue Tigers clinched a berth in the Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletics Association postseason tournament.

The win pushes Lincoln to 8-9 in the conference with three league games remaining. Southwest Baptist, the ninth-place team (only the top eight teams qualify for the MIAA tournament), sits a 4-13 in the conference.
