Seton Hall’s women’s basketball team is going dancing for a second straight season.
The Pirates found out on Monday that they will be heading to Storrs, Connecticut as an 8-seed to take on Duquesne, a 9-seed, in the NCAA Tournament. The game will be played on Saturday, March 19 at 1:30 p.m.
Like the men’s team on Sunday, the women found out their NCAA Tournament fate while watching on a giant projection screen in Walsh Gymnasium on campus. Players, coaches, fans, alumni and media looked on as Seton Hall heard its name called.
The Pirates are coming off a 23-win season. The Hall lost to Rutgers in the first round of last year’s NCAA Tournament.
