St. Anselm men named to NCAA Div. II basketball tourney field

St. Anselm College will face Le Moyne in the opening round of the Division II NCAA East Regional men’s basketball tournament, hosted by newly crowned Northeast-10 conference champion Southern Connecticut State at the Moore Field House March 15-18.

The Hawks, 20-7 under head coach Keith Dickson, received an at-large bid as the East Region’s No. 3 seed, the NCAA Selection Committee announced Sunday night.

It’s the 18th trip to the regionals for the Hawks, who have been selected to the NCAA Tournament field in back-to-back seasons for the first time since 2004-05 and 2005-06.
Last season the Hawks served as the host school for the NCAA East Regional at Southern New Hampshire University’s Fieldhouse.

Le Moyne (17-11) enters the tournament ranked sixth and will play St. Anselm on Saturday. The time of the game will be announced later Monday. The St. Anselm/Le Moyne winner will face the winner between No. 2 seed University of New Haven and No. 7 seed Bloomfield College in a semifinal tilt Sunday.

The other first round match-ups on Saturday feature top-ranked Southern Connecticut State (27-2) hosting No. 8 seed Bridgeport (18-10) and No. 5 Philadelphia University (25-6) will play No. 4 seed Franklin Pierce University (20-7).

St. Anselm and Le Moyne met once during the regular season. The Dolphins prevailed 76-74 at home on Jan. 22.

The Hawks won nine straight games after that defeat before losing to New Haven, 85-58, at home in the semifinal round of the NE-10 tournament. The Hawks won the Northeast-10 regular season title for the second straight season.
