Both the men’s and women’s basketball teams go into the Big South Tournament, set for later this week, as defending champions. You’ll find several bits of information in today’s post about how you and your Lancers can be part of the postseason excitement.
The tournament will be held in Bojangles Coliseum in Charlotte, North Carolina. The most up-to-date and detailed information can be found at Longwood’s Tournament Central website.
Free Tournament Tickets for Students
The university is giving away tickets on site to the first 150 students who arrive for each game the Lancers play in the tournament.
Who Plays When and Where (Including Televised Games)
The women’s team (#6 seed) plays its first game vs. Campbell at 8 p.m. Thursday, March 2. The first game for the men’s team (#2 seed) is at 6 p.m. on Friday (vs. the winner of the Campbell-vs.-Presbyterian matchup on Wednesday). Both of these games will be streamed on ESPN+.
The semifinals also will be streamed on ESPN+. The men’s championship game (1 p.m. Sunday, March 5) will be on ESPN2, and the women’s championship game (6 p.m. Sunday, March 5) will be shown on ESPNU.
