Sacred Heart and Fairleigh Dickinson All Smiles During NCAA Bowling Selection Show
Northeast Conference Bowling fans who were hoping to see a rematch of the Sunday’s memorable NEC Bowling Championship final may get their wish in two weeks.
NEC finalists Fairleigh Dickinson and Sacred Heart received at-large berths into the NCAA Championship field when the eight-team bracket was uncovered on Wednesday afternoon.
FDU has only once missed out on qualifying for bowling’s version of the “Big Dance” and will look to make its eighth ever trip to the Final Four come April 12-14 in the Cleveland suburb of Wickliffe, OH.
Meanwhile, Sacred Heart is making its long-awaited return to the national title tournament. The Pioneers last contested the championship field in 2008.
If all goes right, NEC bowling enthusiasts could be staring at their dream NCAA final matchup on Saturday, April 14. If so, they’ll get to see it on live TV along with the rest of America. The NCAA Championship final will air on Saturday, April 14 at 8:00 pm on ESPNU and will re-air on ESPN the following day.
