FSU teams earn national tourney bids

FAIRMONT — For the second time in four years, both Fairmont State University’s men’s and women’s basketball teams have earned NCAA Division II Basketball Tournament berths.

The Falcon men and women learned their tournament fates late Sunday evening during a joint viewing of the selection shows in the school’s library.

FSU’s men (22-8) earned the No. 4 seed in the Atlantic Regional and will face fifth-seeded Livingstone (N.C.) College (22-6) Saturday at West Liberty University’s ASRC. Game time for the contest will be announced Monday.

The Lady Falcons (23-9), meanwhile, will be the eighth seed in the women’s Atlantic Regional and battle top-seeded and host school Gannon (Pa.) University (28-4) Friday at the Hammermill Center in Erie, Pa. The game time for that contest will also be announced Monday.
