The Women’s NCAA Division II Tournament begins on Friday with three British players involved in March Madness.
First round v Florida Southern #5 – Saturday 12th March (1:30am GMT)
Price had a big year at Eckerd and was named SSC Player of the Year after putting up 14.8 points and 7.1 rebounds per game on the season. The junior centre fired in a best of 27 points back in December and recorded four double-doubles throughout the campaign.
Eckerd have a 20-4 record on the season as they fell to defeat against Florida Southern in the semi-finals of the post-season tournament. The Tritons – who are ranked number 17 – are the fourth seeds in the South Regional and face a repeat matchup with Florida Southern in their opener.
First round v Indiana (PA) #7 – Friday 11th March (7:30pm GMT)
Harrison has played a major role for CalU (PA) down the stretch of their regular season campaign having first hit double figures in scoring at the end of January with a 20-point haul. The junior guard/forward then had a run of seven games in eight with at least 10+ points; culminating in a season-high of 22 points.
The Sheffield native posted a double-double in the semi-final victory over Shepherd and despite losing the Championship game of the PSAC tournament, the Vulcans received an at-large berth and will take on IUP in their opening game of the Atlantic Regional.
First round v Cal State East Bay #1 – Saturday 12th March (1am GMT)
Akako is currently recovering from injury so won’t be taking to the court with ArtU having been sidelined since January. The junior guard/forward was recently celebrated on senior night and had bests of five points and seven rebounds against Hawaii Pacific at the start of 2022.
ArtU have an 18-10 record on the season and were beaten by Azusa Pacific in the Championship game of the PacWest tournament. The Cougars face a tough test in their opener as they take on the number-1 seeds in the West Regional, Cal State East Bay.
