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.
