(AUGUSTA)– The No. 6 University of North Georgia women’s basketball team will enter the 30th Peach Belt Conference women’s basketball tournament as the second seed in the event, the league office announced Monday morning.
Wednesday’s semifinal games will tip-off at 5:30 p.m.
Due to NCAA and conference COVID-19 protocols, the Convocation Center will host a limited number of fans for the semifinals. A total of 150 tickets will be sold for the game for $10 each, with students with a valid ID from a PBC member institution getting in for free. Tickets must be purchased online in advance as there will not be any walk-up ticket sales.
The Nighthawks, ranked sixth nationally by the WBCA, enter the PBC after going 12-1 in conference play this season, 15-1 overall and are carrying a 10-game winning streak into the tournament. UNG won the 2018 and 2019 PBC Tournaments and have been a top-two seed for three straight years. The Nighthawks will host third-seeded Clayton State on Wednesday.
In the other semifinal matchup, top-seeded and No. 2 Lander will host Georgia Southwestern, who earned the No. 4 seed. It is GSW’s first-ever tournament appearance.
The game will be broadcast live on the PBC Sports Network for fans unable to make their way to Dahlonega.
