KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) An NAIA basketball title will be on the line Tuesday night when Oklahoma City University faces Concordia of Irvine, California, in the title game of the NAIA tournament.

Tip-off is set for 8 p.m. at Municipal Auditorium in Kansas City, Missouri.

The 34-2 Stars earned a trip to the finals with a 76-61win Monday night over Faulkner University in the semifinals.

Meanwhile, Concordia ousted top-seeded and previously unbeaten Robert Morris 124-119 in an exhausting quadruple-overtime thriller Monday night.

It will be the second-straight year OCU has made it to the NAIA finals. They lost 67- 65 to Texas Wesleyan on a last-second 3-pointer in last year's title game, but almost everyone in the program is new.
