PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – For the first time since 2000, the St. Joe’s women’s basketball team is headed to the NCAA Tournament.
After winning the Atlantic 10 tournament, the Hawks earned a nine-seed and they will match-up with Vanderbilt in the first round on Saturday morning. The game will be played on UConn’s home floor in Storrs, Connecticut.
“We’ve waited a long time for this,” St. Joe’s junior guard Erin Shields tells KYW Newsradio. “We worked hard all season and this was our goal, it was to get to the NCAA Tournament and we’re finally here. So we’re really excited.”
