Bryan College (Tenn.)


Bryan has had an unlikely road to the NAIA DII Women’s Basketball National Championship, and this is the second trip in three years for this squad. The Lions aren’t ranked, and haven’t been all year as they were below .500 until Feb. 22 when a win over Columbia College in the first round of the AAC Tournament gave them a winning record. After that, the strong run would continue, as the Lions defeated RV Point University, No. 25 Reinhardt University and Tennessee Wesleyan University en route to the AAC Tournament championship and an automatic bid to the 2017 Championship. Bryan is led in the scoring column by guard Amber Levi, who is averaging 16.47 points per game this year, and tallied a career-high 42 points on Feb. 4 against St. Andrews.
