SPRINGFIELD, Mo--Late Sunday night the Drury men's basketball team learned of their No. 1 seed in the Midwest Region of the NCAA Division II National tournament. And to put the icing on the cake the Panthers will host the regionals this weekend.

The team gathered at the O'Reilly center to watch their seed be announced. The defending champs will start their quest for a repeat against 23-6 Wisconsin Parkside on Saturday at 6 pm.

Drury beat the Rangers this year by only two points 54-52 on February 13th.

"Very excited. It feels good to come home and have a chance to play three more games and as a senior to have some more games to play at home. It starts tomorrow in practice, just take it one game at a time and try to get back in our grove. Sometimes it takes losing like that to get from the bottom and try to get back to the top. It's good we played Parkside earlier in the season. It's good to know we beat them it will be a whole different game. You never know what can happen so I think it's fair," said Panthers forward Ian Carter.
