Dancing Again! Join a NCAA Selection Sunday watch party on March 17

For the second time in three years, our men’s basketball team is headed to the big dance—the NCAA Tournament—and, as an important part of the Lancer family, you’re invited to join in the excitement starting this Sunday!

On Selection Sunday, March 17, help us cheer on the team as they find out who they will take on in the first round of March Madness! You can join other Lancer fans at the campus watch party or at a regional watch party in your area. All of the watch parties have no entry fee and are open to all Lancer fans. (You’ll find details about times and locations at the bottom of this post.)

Or you can watch the Selection Sunday show from home at 6 p.m. on your local CBS station.

All this is thanks to the men’s stellar performance in the Big South Tournament, which earned them the conference championship. You can see some of the Big South Tournament action here.

“We’re so excited to welcome fans back to the Joan Perry Brock Center one more time this season to celebrate not only this special team and their incredible run to close out the season, but also the best fans in the Big South,” said Longwood Athletics Director Tim Hall. “I hope to see all of Lancer Nation rock JPB one more time this season when we find out where we are headed for March Madness.”

Keep an eye on https://www.longwood.edu/gowood/ for all things tournament-related. We’ll be regularly updating the site with information about watch parties, Longwood’s games and more.

Now about those Selection Sunday watch parties.

Campus Watch Party

Joan Perry Brock Center

What a great moment to share with your student! Everyone will be in their Lancer blue and white and anticipating the announcement of Longwood’s first game in the tournament. (You might even be caught on camera if Virginia television stations cover the event.) There will be complimentary snacks, T-shirt giveaways, free posters and the chance to take photos with the 2024 Big South Tournament trophy before the 6 p.m. show. Try to allow yourself enough time to be in your seat behind the team by 5:45 p.m. Afterwards, everyone is invited to meet and greet team members, who will be available to sign autographs.
