SIOUX CITY, IOWA -- The Raiders lived to fight another day after knocking off first-round opponent Antelope Valley, 77-66 in the NAIA national tournament. With just a three-point lead at halftime, SOU pulled away in the fourth quarter behind a resurgent performance from redshirt senior Remi Mejia. 

Mejia finished with 28 points on 10-for-19 shooting. Teammates Toria Bradford and Ariel Augustine were each in double digits as well, scoring 16 and 11 points respectively. That veteran backcourt of Mejia and Bradford will play at least one more game together. 

The Raiders take on Dakota Wesleyan (North Dakota) in the Round of 16. They are the No. 2 seed in the Raiders' region and knocked off the 7th-seeded Indiana East, 78-62 in the first round. Outside of playing Concordia (Nebraska), a national power who they've lost to twice, the team has won its last 13 games. 

The Raiders and Tigers tip off at 1:45 p.m. on Friday.
