MOORHEAD, Minn. (AP) — The Minnesota State Moorhead men’s basketball team is headed for the quarterfinals of the NCAA Division II tournament for the first time in program history.

The Dragons will play Bellarmine University of Louisville, Kentucky, in the Elite Eight round on Thursday night. The semifinals are on Saturday, and the national championship game is on Sunday. All of the games will be held in Evansville, Indiana.

The Dragons have a 35-3 record, after beating Northwest Missouri State last week to win the Central Region. They went 15-0 at home this season and 20-2 in the Northern Sun conference. There are six Minnesota natives on the roster, in coach Chad Walthall’s fifth season.
