The Cal Poly Pomona women's basketball team won the NCAA Division II West Region title with a 68-61 victory over Grand Canyon on Monday in front of 1,103 at Kellogg Gym.

It's the first regional crown since 2002 for the Broncos, who will now head to St. Joseph, Mo., to compete in the Elite Eight round of the tournament.

"It's been a while since this program has been on top," Megan Ford said after the postgame ceremony in Pomona. "And we're back," Sarah Semenero chimed in.

Reyana Colson led all scorers with 28 points, earning the tournament's most-outstanding-player award. Semenero and Ford joined Colson on the all-tournament team for Cal Poly Pomona, and Samantha Murphy and Jallisa Butler of Grand Canyon also received the honor.

Up next for the Broncos will be a quarterfinal matchup against Northwest Missouri State on March 22. Tipoff is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. PDT.
