With the Saint Mary’s men and women’s basketball teams virtually assured of playing in the postseason, here are a few items of interest to Gaels hoops fans:
NCAA Tournament Selection Sunday: The SMC men’s basketball team has chosen to watch the annual NCAA Selection Show in private. There will be no public event on campus. The show is scheduled to begin at 2:30 p.m. (PT) on CBS.
NIT Selection: Should the Gaels not be selected to the NCAA Tournament, they are guaranteed to be included in the NIT field by virtue of winning the West Coast Conference regular season. The NIT Selection Show is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. (PT) on ESPNU.
Women’s Basketball Selection: Monday’s women’s basketball NCAA Selection Show is scheduled to begin at 4 p.m. (PT) on ESPN.
WNIT Selection: The WNIT will announce its tournament selection by 9 p.m. (PT) Monday evening via its website.
Tickets: In either case, the SMC Athletic Ticket Office will have ticket information available on SMCGaels.com (Men | Women). Should either team qualify for the NCAA Tournament, an order form will be available on the website. Depending on the NIT or WNIT game site (home or away), information or online ordering for tickets will be made available as quickly as possible after selection.
