A-Sun Women's Hoops Tournament Seeding Set

MACON, GA.-Saturday's results around the conference, including Campbell's 98-70 victory over USC Upstate, finalized the field of eight for next week's General Shale Atlantic Sun Women's Basketball Championship.

The tournament kicks off Wednesday, March 2 at noon with No. 1 East Tennessee State and No. 8 Lipscomb inside Mercer's University Center in Macon, Ga. No. 2 Stetson and No. 7 Kennesaw State will wrap up day one action at 6:30 p.m.

Day two of quarterfinal play begins on Thursday at noon with No. 4 North Florida and No. 5 Jacksonville. The No. 3 Lady Camels will make their 2011 postseason debut at 6:30 against No. 6 Belmont.

The tournament's semifinal games will be Friday, March 4 at noon (winners 1/8 vs. 4/5) and 6:30 p.m. (winners 2/7 vs. 3/6). The A-Sun Championship Game will tip at noon on Saturday.

The semifinal and final matchups will be broadcast live on Comcast Sports Southeast (CSS). All games will be available on ASun.tv.

Campbell's No. 3 seed matches last season's postseason ranking. The seed is the highest for CU since 2001, and its fourth-highest seeding ever in the A-Sun. The Lady Camels were the tournament's No. 2 team in 1999 and 2000, while earning a No. 1 seed in 2001.

CU's 12 A-Sun wins mark the most since that 2001 season, when the Lady Camels finished 16-2 in league play.
