SNU recommended for Division II membership

The Associated PressJuly 13, 2014 

— The NCAA Division II membership committee has recommended Southern Nazarene University in Bethany be approved as a member of NCAA Division II.

The recommendation is the second of three steps for the university to be admitted into NCAA Division II. The third step is a final decision by the division's management council during a meeting scheduled later this month. The committee's decision is expected July 22.

Southern Nazarene has competed during the past two years in the Great American Conference that includes colleges and universities in Oklahoma and Arkansas.

Full Division II membership would allow SNU to take part in postseason play in both the conference and the NCAA.
