MEDFORD - The Tufts University men's and women's basketball teams will find out if they have earned at-large berths into the 2017 NCAA DIII Championships today.
You can watch both selection shows today at http://www.ncaa.com/liveschedule. The men's announcement begins at 12:30 p.m. and the women's is slated to start at 2:30 pm.
Head coach Carla Berube's women's team is 25-2 and finished as the NESCAC runner-up. The Jumbos, who have a strong chance to host a Regional at Cousens Gym next weekend (Mar. 3-4), would be making their ninth appearance in the NCAA Tournament. The last three Tufts teams have advanced to the NCAA "Final Four," including last year's squad which made it to the NCAA final before losing to Thomas More.
On the men's side, head coach Bob Sheldon's Jumbos are 20-6 and earned the #1 seed in the NESCAC with an 8-2 record. Tufts is seeking its fifth NCAA berth after advancing to the "Elite Eight" last season. The Jumbos hosted the Regional and Sectional rounds of last year's tournament at Cousens Gym.
