Gulf Coast learned it was back in the NJCAA Division II Top 20 in the early afternoon, and the official bracket was announced later in the day.


No. 2 Jones, which is hosting the tournament after winning the MACCC, will play Hinds in the final game of the day. The final will be Sunday at 6:30 p.m.


The ultimate winner this weekend will advance to the national championship, which will be played Nov. 14-19 in Tucson, Ariz.


Gulf Coast will almost certainly need to win it all in Ellisville to advance. There are four at-large bids to the national tournament, but the Bulldogs would not be likely to receive one.
