Shorter University’s Hawks basketball team has made it to the semifinal round of the 2012 NAIA Division I Men’s Basketball Championship.  The top-ranked and top-seeded Hawks will face fourth-seeded Concordia from California tonight at 7 pm in Kansas City, Missouri.  The Hawks head to the semifinals after posting a 63-60 win over Rogers State in the Elite Eight on Saturday and before that, a 92-77 win over Point Loma Nazarene in second round action on Friday.  If the Hawks win tonight’s semifinal game against Concordia, they’ll advance to tomorrow night’s national championship game against the winner of today’s second semifinal game between No. 2 Oklahoma Baptist and No. 11 Mountain State.  Jim Bojo is in Kansas City to bring you the story of Shorter’s Hawks in the national tournament live on the radio on 95.7 FM The Ridge and online at www.theridge957.com.
