Here are the toughest tests for the two remaining undefeated Division II women's basketball teams

UC San Diego Athletics UC San Diego is one of five remaining Division II women's basketball teams.

And then there were two.

That's all that remains undefeated in the Division II women's basketball season. With the NCAA tournament selection show near, let's take a look at the roads each team will have to travel to finish the season perfect.

No. 1 Drury (25-0)

Signature wins: Nov. 23, 76-43 over No. 24 Lindenwood; Jan. 12, 69-66 over No. 18 Lewis; Jan. 26, 77-50 over Southern Indiana; 72-66 over Truman
Toughest tests remaining: Feb. 23 at Maryville

The Panthers are atop the GLVC and eked one out against third-place Lewis. They now have just one game remaining against a team with a winning record in the conference. Drury has four conference losses over the past three seasons, so it has shown it can handle its familiar foes.

No. 2 UC San Diego (23-0)

Signature wins: Nov. 10, 76-64 over Hawaii Pacific; Feb. 7, 101-72 over Cal Poly Pomona

The Tritons don’t face a ranked opponent the rest of the way, which certainly plays to their favor on paper. On Jan. 24, UC San Diego survived a tough test against an 11-4 Chico State team who joins the Tritons as the only two teams undefeated at home in the CCAA.
