Concordia-St. Paul wins 40th consecutive NCAA tourney match

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa -- Third-seeded Concordia-St. Paul (33-3) defeated top-seeded Tampa (32-2) on Thursday night in four sets in the NCAA Division II quarterfinals (18-25, 25-17, 25-19, 25-22) at the US Cellular Center.

The win improves Concordia's NCAA tournament win streak to 40 consecutive matches, as its all-time NCAA tournament record improves to 50-4 in 11 appearances. Concordia is now 8-1 in nine trips to the national quarterfinals.

Concordia is now 8-3 all-time against the Spartans, including four consecutive years in the NCAA tournament.

The Golden Bears will continue their quest for an NCAA record seventh consecutive national championship in the semifinals at 8:30 p.m. Friday against Wheeling Jesuit. Concordia is unbeaten in seven prior appearances in the national semifinals.

Concordia won the first meeting in program history with Wingate last season in the national quarterfinals in four sets. The two teams also met earlier this season on Sept. 8, resulting in a CU sweep of Wingate at Gangelhoff Center. A meeting with Wheeling Jesuit would be the first between the two schools.
