LOOKOUT MOUNTAIN -- The Covenant men's basketball team will make its debut in the NCAA Tournament on Friday, March 4 in Atlanta against host Emory. Game time is set for 7:30 p.m. at the Woodruff PE Center.
Covenant (18-9) qualified for the NCAA Tournament, its first in program history, by winning the USA South Tournament championship last week. The Scots are one of two USA South schools to make the 62-team field as LaGrange (20-8) earned an at-large berth. It is the first time since 1997 that the USA South has had two men's programs make the field in the same year.
Covenant and Emory make up half of the teams in the Atlanta pod. LaGrange and Birmingham Southern will play in the other game. The two winners on Friday will play on Saturday at 7 p.m. for the right to move on to Sectionals on March 11-12.
