Lady Rams & GSW men react to NCAA tourney bids

Posted: Updated:
ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The Albany State Lady Rams and Georgia Southwestern men both heard their names called in the NCAA Division II basketball show last night.

The Lady Rams earned the 5-seed in the South Central region and will play against Delta State. Athletic Director Richard Williams is happy for head coach Robert Skinner.

"Coach Skinner, being the head coach of three sports, yet again he finds himself in a championship situation," Williams said. "So I believe it means the world for him."

The Hurricanes will take on Montevallo as a 6-seed in the Southeast Region. GSW split both regular season match ups with Montevallo and head coach Mike Leeder says the battle on the boards will decide the contest.

"We're 14-0 this year when we out rebound our opponent," Leeder said. "We are 6-10 when we don't. So the numbers don't lie."

That game will be played Saturday on the campus of South Carolina Aiken.
