In another of the fantastic finishes at the NAIA Division II Men's Basketball Championship, the Cinderella team of 2016, No. 8 York College, held on to defeat No. 5 Dakota Wesleyan, 78-77.

Head Coach Delton Deal commented on the win, "It was a tough game from the beginning. We got down a little bit early but kept clawing and fighting back. Really, we won the game because of our defense. We had about five incredible stops at the end of the game. I can't be more proud of these guys; we just refuse to lose." 

​When asked how he felt about making it to the elite eight, Coach Deal said, "It's awesome to make history.  It's one step up from where we've been before. We say, 'We're not done; we're just getting started.'"

York moves on to meet No. 2 Indiana Wesleyan (30-5) in Saturday's quarterfinals at 7 pm.
