POINT LOOKOUT, Mo. - Four seeded teams are left after the second round of the 2013 NAIA Division II Men's Basketball National Championship. The 2013 event is being held at the Keeter Gymnasium on the campus of College of the Ozarks in Point Lookout, Mo.

After a record number of 10 unseeded teams advanced into the second round on a crazy first two days of the championship, four are still alive heading into Saturday. Midland continued the "madness" with a 76-71 overtime win over York to get a spot in the quarterfinals for the first time. Dakota State, Grace and College of the Ozarks are the other three unseeded teams that advanced into the quarters.

The top two seeds, #1 William Penn (Iowa) and #2 Cardinal Stritch (Wis.) flexed their muscle with convincing wins over Bethel (Ind.) and Bellevue (Neb.) on Friday. Like Midland, Saturday's quarterfinal opponent, the top seeded Statesmen are into the quarters for the first time.

Four teams are making just their second trip into the quarterfinals; Cardinal Stritch, Dakota State, Dordt and Indiana University Southeast. The host Bobcats has the most appearances with six, followed by Grace with four.

Saturday's quarterfinal round features four games, beginning at 1:00pm with Midland taking on #1 William Penn. The 32-team, single elimination tournament concludes Tuesday, March 12, with the championship game to tip-off at 8 pm.
