Tay Tay Wilson and Olivia Usher of Kirkwood were named to the second all-region team. Rylee Voss was named to the third unit.

No. 1 KCC women take 33-0 mark to nationals

The players on the Kirkwood women's basketball team like to tease  Coach Kim Muhl and call him "The Man, The Myth, The Legend" when he's  conducting a post-game interview and they pass him in the hallway.

"The Man, The Myth, The Legend" got even bigger Saturday.

The top-ranked Eagles spanked NIACC, 90-61, in the championship game  of the regional tournament at Johnson Hall and will carry a glittering  33-0 record to the national tournament.

Muhl has captured six national titles during his Hall of Fame career  and thinks he has the ingredients for Lucky No. 7.

"Oh yeah. We're capable," he said. "We have to stay healthy and get a  few breaks."

The NJCAA Division II national tournament will be played in Harrison,  Ark., from March 21-25.

NIACC popped in ten 3-pointers in the first half and was within 48-44  at intermission, but the Eagles destroyed the visitors in the second  half and won easily.

Muhl has coached a lot of outstanding teams at Kirkwood, but he's  never had a club that went undefeated for the regular season and  regional.

"Pretty special. Pretty special," he said before the Eagles cut down  the championship net. "Great group. We'll see who we've got (at  nationals) and go from there."

No. 1 KCC women make regional final

You don't win six national championships by settling.

Kim Muhl has coached the Kirkwood women to the pinnacle six times in his 28 years as head coach and his current Eagles' team has the potential to be his best yet.

Kirkwood won for the 32nd time without a loss Thursday night, steamrolling Southwestern, 79-52, in the Region XI tournament semifinal at Johnson Hall.

The win allows the top-ranked Eagles to host Saturday's 1 p.m. tournament final. The opponent will be NIACC (19-12), a 90-80 upset winner over No. 11 DMACC in Thursday's other semifinal.

One would think Muhl would be happy with Thursday's outcome.

Guess again.

The veteran Eagles' coach was disappointed in the play of his bench, which logged more minutes than usual when sophomore center Simone Goods injured her ankle less than two minutes into the game and had to head to the training room for treatment.
