Women's Basketball to Visit Scranton for First Round of NCAA Division III Tournament

Worcester, MA --- The WPI women's basketball team will travel to Scranton, PA for the first round of the NCAA Division III Women's Basketball Championship. The Engineers will face the host Lady Royals in a double header on Friday. The other game features Marymount (VA) and Cabrini with the advancing teams meeting on Saturday.

Games times and ticket prices will be announced later Monday or early Tuesday. 

It is the Engineers first appearance since winning the NEW 8 title in 1996 and third overall (1984). The Crimson and Gray went 24-4 on the season, tying the program mark for wins in a single season, under the guidance of 16th-year head coach Cherise Galasso. They also finished second in the NEWMAC standings before winning three games in the conference tournament, including a nail-biter Sunday at Babson, to earn the AQ to the national tournament.
