Green Terror tabbed sixth in latest rankings
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. - The fourth NCAA Division III Mid-Atlantic women's basketball regional rankings have released and McDaniel is sixth.
The Green Terror (18-6, 16-4 CC) makes its debut in the regional rankings after an 82-70 victory on Saturday over Gettysburg, which was ranked No. 6 in last week's Mid-Atlantic rankings.
McDaniel travels to Muhlenberg for a rematch with the Bullets in the Centennial Conference (CC) semifinals on Saturday, searching for its fourth conference title.
With a victory, the Green Terror will advance to the championship game on Sunday at 2 p.m. The winner receives the conference's automatic bid into the NCAA tournament.
With its regional ranking, McDaniel could also be considered for one of the 21 at-large bids into the tournament if the team does not earn the automatic bid that comes with a championship. The Green Terorr earned its first-ever at-large bid in 2007 after falling in the CC semifinals.
