ST. GEORGE — The Trailblazers, who finished the season 23-7 overall, earned the No. 3 seed in the south central region of the NCAA Division II national tournament. No. 1 seeded West Texas A&M (32-1) will host the regional tournament in Canyon, Texas that will start March 13.
The seedings were announced Sunday night on the Division II selection show. The Trailblazers earned the at-large bid despite a tough loss in the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference tournament semifinals against Colorado Mesa.
The No. 3 seeded Trailblazers will take on fellow RMAC opponent No. 6 Colorado School of Mines (22-10) on March 13.
Dixie State fell in overtime at home to the Orediggers, 79-80. on Jan. 4.
If Dixie State beats Mines, they will advance on to the second round where they will play the winner of No. 2 St. Edwards and No. 7 Dallas Baptist.
