SPOKANE - Whitworth will take aim at a 10th consecutive Northwest Conference Tournament win Thursday night when they host Lewis & Clark.
That streak has allowed the Pirates to claim six straight tournament titles, on top of their run of four regular season crowns.
Matt Logie's guys haven't stopped there, either. Last season they advanced to the NCAA Tournament's round of 16 for the third consecutive postseason. Logie guided his team to that threshold as a first year head coach, and this season Whitworth has again had an array of players step into heightened roles on the team.
Their run at another NWC crown, and the division III tournament begins Thursday at 7:00 p.m. against the Pioneers.
