It’s tournament time for the Spartans.

The men’s and women’s basketball teams travel to Asheville this week to compete in their respective Southern Conference tournaments. And the stakes are high – a tournament championship for either team means a trip to the Big Dance.

The women’s team will face off against Chattanooga on Thursday at 5:45 p.m. The game will be broadcast on ESPN3.

Head Coach Wes Miller’s top-seeded squad will play on Saturday at noon against the winner of Friday’s first-round contest between Samford and Chattanooga. The men’s game will also be broadcast on ESPN3.

UNCG Athletics will provide transportation to Asheville for students for a $10 fee. Bus trips will begin with the men’s basketball game on Saturday, and additional transportation information will be sent via email to students. All UNCG students are eligible for a complimentary ticket to the SoCon Tournament.
