It’ll be a battle of the Whits with Northwest Conference basketball championships on the line when the nationally ranked Whitworth Pirates men and women entertain the Whitman Missionaries in a doubleheader that will be shown on SWX ( women at 6, men at 8). The Pirates women (18-5, 12-2 NWC), who moved into the D3hoops.com poll at No. 25 this week, face the second-ranked Missionaries (23-0, 14-0). The 19-4, 13-1 Pirates men, up to No. 13 in the D3hoops.com poll this week, meet the 16-7, 11-3 Missionaries, who beat Whitworth earlier. Wins by the Pirates men and Missionaries women would clinch outright NWC titles.
