Stetson Athletics invites Hatters fans to watch the NCAA Tournament selection show with the 2012-13 Atlantic Sun Conference Women's Basketball Champions Monday night at Bill and Frank's Brickhouse Grill, 142 North Woodland Boulevard in DeLand. The show will air at 7 p.m. on ESPN.
The team will gather at approximately 6:15 at the restaurant and then settle in to wait for the announcement of who they will play and where they will go in the NCAA Tournament. First round games will be either Saturday, March 23 or Sunday, March 24.
This will be Stetson's third NCAA Tournament appearance in program history; the Hatters traveled to Knoxville, Tenn. in the each of their two previous trips. In 2005, the 16th-seeded Hatters fell to #1 LSU 70-36, and in 2011, the 16th-seeded Hatters fell to #1 Tennessee 99-34.
In 2012-13, Stetson (24-8) won a school record 24 games overall and a school-record 14 conference games during the season. In the A-Sun tournament, Stetson defeated ETSU 66-55 in the quarterfinals, knocked off Mercer 67-52 in the semifinals, then rallied from a 15-point second-half deficit to shock top-seed FGCU 70-64 and capture the A-Sun crown.
