The Roanoke College Women will look to keep their season alive Friday night when they travel to Newport News for the opening round of the NCAA tournament.
For the Lady Maroons it is their first trip to the dance since 2000.
Roanoke College had a scare that their great season seemed to come to an end following a loss to Virginia Wesleyan in the semi-final round of the ODAC tournament.
But the Maroons got an at-large bid, only the second in school history.
Now Roanoke College is looking at their early exit from the ODAC tournament as a lesson learned going forward with the rest of their season.
