Lady Royals Advance to Final Four

    March 13, 2019

    In what was the 100th NCAA Tournament game all-time for The University of Scranton women's basketball program, the Lady Royals captured one of the more memorable victories in team history on Saturday evening, as they scored the final 15 points of regulation to conquer Tufts, 44-40, in the 2019 NCAA Division III Women's Basketball Sectional Finals in the John Long Center.

    With the victory, Scranton, now 29-2 overall and winners of 10 games in a row, move into 2019 NCAA Division III Final Four, an event they will play in for the ninth time in program history and the first time since 2006. In Friday's National Semifinals, the Lady Royals will take on No. 1 Thomas More at the Cregger Center on the campus of Roanoke College at a time to be announced.

    Tufts ends their season with a 28-3 overall mark with the tough defeat.
