    Three-time defending champion Wichita State and Webber International won all three of their matches at AMF Peach Lanes to remain undefeated on the men's side. For the women, NCAA champions Maryland Eastern Shore and Lindenwood finished with a perfect record to reach Saturday's semifinal round.

    All four teams need to win just one match in the semifinals to advance to the finals, scheduled to begin at approximately 2 p.m. Eastern, Saturday. The championship matches will air tape-delayed on ESPN2 on May 15 at 2 p.m. Eastern.

    "This thing is far from complete," Wichita State men's coach Gordon Vadakin said. "It's very easy for a team to get hot because that's the nature of this tournament."

    On the women's side, Maryland Eastern Shore (pictured right) defeated Robert Morris-Illinois, 4-3, to lock up its spot in the semifinals against Central Florida. Lindenwood and Adelphi will battle in the other semifinal.

    "We came in knowing that we had just won the NCAA title and were riding high," Maryland Eastern Shore coach Sharon Brumell said. "We had a little trouble making the right ball choices today, but we found it in the end when it counted."

    The semifinal matches will be live streamed on BOWL.com starting at 8 a.m. Eastern.
