Madness begins

Four in the hunt

We're down to four basketball teams with postseason hopes.

The UConn men's and women's teams begin Big East tourney play next week. Their NCAA tickets are already punched.
The Huskies' women team will get the No. 1 seed overall which means a spot at Bridgeport for a couple of games and then it's on to one of four sites at New Orleans, Spokane, Washington, Greensboro, N.C. or Oklahoma City, Okla. It will be mostly Greensboro.

The Quinnipiac women are three games away from its first NCAA bid. The Bobcats need two wins at LIU this weekend and then would get a chance to host the final on March 16. The road will be tough with potential matchups against host LIU and then a final against Sacred Heart or Robert Morris ahead.

The New Haven women's basketball team also heads to New York for the weekend. The Chargers will meet Bridgeport Saturday at Queens College at noon and if they win will play for the title on Sunday also at Queens College.

Both Quinnipiac and New Haven need to win the tournament to earn a berth in the NCAA as both coaches feel they will not receive at-large invitations.

We'll keep you posted.

The NEC women's postseason awards will be announced Friday night. Quinnipiac's Erin Kerner has a great chance to earn Player of the Year honors.
