The Golden Tigers are likely to the massive dance.

The Tuskegee women’s basketball workforce is headed to the Division II NCAA Event, seeded fifth in the Southeast location in the countrywide bracket unveiled Sunday night.

Tuskegee will encounter fourth-seeded Tusculum at the Southeast regional event site in Jefferson Metropolis, Tenn.

The winner will face the region’s top rated seed, Belmont Abbey.

Right after Tuskegee’s postseason was thrown into question final thirty day period, the Golden Tigers will end its stellar season on the grand stage.

The Golden Tigers are queens without having a crown. The runaway course of the SIAC in the course of the typical period, Tuskegee noticed the SIAC cancel the convention tournament in February right before it had the likelihood to gain it — leaving the Golden Tigers with out a direct path to an automatic qualifier to the countrywide event and awaiting word on their postseason fate.

Tuskegee was rated No. 19 nationally in the most current WBCA rankings for Division II previous week, after ending its SIAC-only plan in January and February with a stellar 12-1 file.

Tuskegee received a few online games of 4 this time versus Benedict College — the team that beat Tuskegee in the SIAC Match finals final year, and stood as Tuskegee’s ideal threat getting into the season. Benedict Faculty gained the initially assembly among the teams on Feb. 17, but Tuskegee bounced back to earn the rematch a day afterwards and then swept yet another back-to-again amongst the teams.
