Hastings College, after making the national semifinals a season ago, squeaked into this year’s NAIA Division II Women’s National Basketball Championship by earning the second-to-last at-large bid. The Broncos will be a No. 6 seed in the championship after recording a 19-11 overall record and a 13-9 mark in the Great Plains Athletic Conference. Hastings is coached by Jina Johansen, who is in her first season leading the Bronco Program.

Senior guard Teeka Thompson leads the Broncos in points per game (14.7) and steals per game (2.6). Sophomores Rachel Jelden and Holly Hild are right behind Thompson in scoring with 11 and 10 points per game respectively. Hastings is No. 6 in the nation in turnover margin (+5.8).

The Broncos began the season with an 11-0 record, but went 8-11 down the stretch to enter the national championship, concluding their season with back-to-back losses to Dakota Wesleyan.
