INDIANAPOLIS – The Salisbury University men's basketball team is set to play in its first NCAA Division III tournament for the first time since the 1996-'97 season, after earning the Capital Athletic Conference's automatic bid by defeating Christopher Newport University on Saturday, 58-57, in the CAC title game for the program's second conference championship.
The Sea Gulls will travel to Hartford, Connecticut and Trinity (Conn.) College for the site of first- and second-round action; Salisbury will take on Eastern Connecticut State University in a first-round game on Friday, March 6.
Salisbury has only played against Eastern Connecticut one other time on January 2, 2013 in a 75-55 Warrior victory. Travon Vann led the Sea Gulls with 21 points on 6-of-13 shooting in the contest.
The other first-round game will feature host Trinity and Colby-Sawyer College, and the winner of each first-round contest would move on to a second-round game at Trinity on Saturday, March 7.
