Sweet 16 Central

On March 13 and 14, the Brandeis women's basketball team heads to Amherst College for their first NCAA Tournament Sweet 16 appearance. The Judges will be playing Muhlenberg College at 5 p.m. on March 13, and with a win will meet the winner the contest between host Amherst and UAA rival NYU on March 14 at 6 p.m.

If you can't make it to Western Massachusetts, as usual, there are several outlets to follow the game. WBRS, 100.1-FM will continue their season-long coverage by making the trip to LeFrak Gymnasium. Additionally, d3hoops.com and NCAA.com will join forces to provide video from the venue. If you want to follow along with the numbers, check out Amherst's LiveStats link. Everything you want to know is available at the Amherst College Tournament Central web site.

If you are planning on making the trip, tickets are available at the door, $7 for adults and $4 for students and senior citizens.
