Jefferson’s phenomenal basketball season will continue in the NCAA Tournament, KYW reported March 11.
The Rams earned an automatic bid to this year’s tournament by winning the Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference, beating USciences, 74-73, in overtime.
“When you walk in our gym, with the CACC banners hanging there, and now to hang a third one, it’s a proud moment for not only the program but for all these individual players,” said Jefferson women’s head coach Tom Shirley.
The No. 3 seed Rams, who have won a program-record 29 games this season, will play sixth-seeded Stonehill College on 12 p.m. on March 15 at USciences in the first round of the East Regional.
