UC Merced (Cali.)

The UC Merced Bobcats finished their 2016-17 regular season with a California Pacific Conference (Cal Pac) tournament championship, slipping past Benedictine University at Mesa 56-57.  Despite their 9-5 record in the Cal Pac, the Bobcats are certainly a tournament-ready team.  Led by 1st year head coach Sarah Hopkins-Chery, UC Merced’s first round matchup against St. Francis (Ill.) will be an uphill battle for the Bobcats.  In the 2016 championship, the Bobcats lost in round one to Morningside College (Iowa) 64-93.
