    The University of Scranton women's basketball team will battle Susquehanna on Sunday, Jan. 15 as part of a full day of Landmark Conference men's and women's hoops action at The Palestra in Philadelphia, Pa.

    Key conference matchups will be showcased throughout the day with four total games taking place with two on the men's side and two on the women's side. Game times are tentatively scheduled for 12:00pm, 2:30pm, 5:00pm and 7:30pm.

    Home of the University of Pennsylvania's men's and women's basketball programs and known as the "Cathedral of College Basketball," The Palestra opened its doors in 1927, making it the oldest major college arena still in use today. It has hosted more games, more visiting teams, and more NCAA tournaments than any other facility of its kind. Currently, it serves as the home to the Philadelphia Big 5, which consists of UPenn, Villanova University, Temple University, Saint Joseph's University, and LaSalle University.

    "The Palestra is one of the most historic arenas in the country so for our players to have the opportunity to play there, is really special. It will be an experience that they will never forget," head coach Ben O'Brien said.

    Tip time for the Lady Royals' contest is yet to be determined.

    "I was so excited to learn that we will be playing Susquehanna at The Palestra this year. I am so grateful that we have the opportunity to play at one of the most historic arenas in the country," senior guard Bridget Monaghan (Florham Park, N.J./Morristown-Beard) added. "We will be competing on an amazing stage with such a special history and environment. This is definitely going to be a crazy experience that we will never forget, and I cannot wait!"

    Additional information regarding game times and ticket sales will be made available in the coming weeks. Be sure to follow both the Landmark Conference and RoyalAthletics on social media as further details are released.
