RALEIGH, N.C. -- The Meredith College women's basketball team battled back from a tough start in early USA South action this season to advance to the conference tournament as the East Division's sixth-seed. The East's third-seed William Peace Pacers will host the Avenging Angels in first round action Wednesday, Feb. 13, at 7 p.m. in the Hermann Athletic Center. Winners advance to Saturday's quarterfinal at the West Division's second-seed Berea College.
The teams split this year's series with the Angels winning the most recent battle in late January in Weatherspoon Gym. And Kimberly Schuh scored a career-high 48 points during the 82-78 loss back on January 2. William Peace will have the home court advantage this round, but the cross-town rivals always put on a good show for fans.
Meredith athletics will cover admission to the tournament game for the first 50 MC students and the first 25 MC faculty/staff. General admission will be $8 per individual with a $3 entry fee for any students, faculty, staff, and seniors. Arrive early to claim your seat in the Hermann Center to cheer on the Avenging Angels!
