    The University of Scranton women's basketball team will play in the NCAA Division III Tournament for the 32nd time in program history, as the Lady Royals will host the opening rounds in the John Long Center for the sixth straight season beginning on Friday evening.

    There, Scranton will take on New England College at 7 p.m. In the other First Round match-up on Friday, Johns Hopkins will entertain Eastern Connecticut State beginning at 5 p.m. The winners of both First Round match-ups will then face off on Saturday in the Second Round with a spot in the Sweet 16 on the line, with tip-off scheduled for 6 p.m.

    Tickets are $7 for adults and $4 for students & children (ages 2 & up) and seniors over the age of 61. Children under the age of two will be admitted at no charge. Tickets will only be sold at the gate on both Friday and Saturday as there will be no advanced ticket sales.

    Scranton, 25-2 overall for the year, finished the year ranked ninth in the WBCA Top 25 and captured their fourth straight Landmark Conference championship on Sunday, rolling through Elizabethtown, 68-48.
