It's tournament time! The seeding committee has released the Men's and Women's bracket for the Region 19 Tournament. The Lady Dukes received the #5 overall seed in the 8-team tournament and the Cumberland Men earned the #6 seed in a field of 14 Region 19 programs. Both teams will take the court on Saturday, with the Cumberland Men at home and the Lady Dukes traveling to Brookdale CC Saturday night.
Women's Basketball: #5 Cumberland at #4 Brookdale - 8PM
Why not? These two teams have combined for the last two Region 19 championships and have split the 2015-16 season series. Over the last three seasons, the series is in favor of Brookdale 4-3. This season, the two sides have each won on the opponent's home floor. The decisive game, and by far most important of the three this season, will take place at Brookdale Community College - Robert J. Collins Arena, for an 8PM tipoff.
Men's Basketball: #11 Luzerne County CC at #6 Cumberland - 5PM
The Men's Basketball program will host their first home playoff game in the last ten years. The program has reached new heights this season under first year head coach Will Wareham, reaching 15 wins for the first time since the 2008-09 season. Cumberland (15-11) will host Luzerne County CC (16-12) at 5PM. The winner of this game will advance to square off against the winner of #3 Bergen v. #14 Bucks County next Tuesday.
