YANKTON, S.D. (AP) - The season for the Mount Marty women’s basketball team has come to an end, one game from a national title shot.

The Yankton school lost 84-55 to Marian University of Indiana on Monday night in the semifinals of the NAIA Division II national tournament in Sioux City, Iowa.

The Lancers finished the season 25-11, including three wins in the national tournament.

Mount Marty was the last of seven teams from the Dakotas that made the field for either the women’s or men’s tournament. Knocked out in earlier rounds were the men’s teams from Valley City State, Dakota Wesleyan and Dakota State, and the women’s teams from Dakota Wesleyan, Jamestown and Dickinson State.
