As St. Joseph continues to be a desired destination for college and high school events, the St. Joseph Sports Commission is proud to announce the schedule for the Second Annual NCAA Division II Women’s Basketball Central Region Showcase November 8-9, 2024.  The event features eight teams competing in eight games (four per day) as part of the opening weekend of the division II basketball season.

“Once again this November, Civic Arena will be filled with elite level tournament play in which coupled with the D2 CCA event announced in conjunction with the MIAA the weekend prior, we’re proud to be hosting four of the last six NCAA Division II Women’s Basketball National Champions over the span of two weekends competing against teams with heavy local/regional interest.  These are can’t miss events right here in St. Joseph!” stated Brett Esely, Executive Director of the St. Joseph Sports Commission.

The Central Region Showcase field is headlined by defending MIAA Champion Missouri Western, Northwest Missouri State and also includes MIAA institutions Fort Hays State and Emporia State (ESU won the 2010 National Championship here in St. Joseph).  From the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Athletics Association, defending National Champion Minnesota State will return to Civic Arena a little under six months after they cut the nets down in the NCAA Elite Eight this past March.  The Mavericks will be joined by Augustana, Sioux Falls and Minnesota State-Moorhead.

“In our continued efforts of establishing St. Joseph as a college and high school regional sports hub, the month of November is a sweet spot time on the calendar to host tournament basketball and we are fortunate to have elite level fields that our community and traveling fans can engage in right in our own backyard!” Esely said.

Ticket information will be released in early fall, in which all sales will be facilitated through the Civic Arena Box Office.  Sponsorship opportunities for the event are available by contacting the sports commission.
