The Western Washington University men’s basketball team was not selected to the 2014 NCAA Division II West Regional.

The Vikings, 20-8 overall, lost to Seattle Pacific University, 65-62, Saturday in the Great Northwest Athletic Conference Tournament championship game.

Western, ranked No. 7 in the latest West Regional poll, was on the bubble for a berth into the Regional but upsets in the California Collegiate Athletic Association and Pacific West Conference all but assured that the Vikings would have to win the GNAC Tournament.

This year marks the end of consecutive West Regional appearances for the Vikings.
