MU women's soccer head to Penn State

This and more at the MU web site

WEST LONG BRANCH, N.J. – The Monmouth University women's soccer team, the 2007 Northeast Conference Champions, will travel to State College, Pennsylvania to compete in the first round of the 26th Annual NCAA Division I Women's Soccer Championship against Penn State University. The Hawks will face the number-one seed in the region and the number-six ranked team in the country on Friday, November 16, at Jeffrey Field.

Monmouth (12-4-4) earned the NEC’s automatic bid to the NCAA Regional by virtue of its 1-0 victory over Sacred Heart on Sunday afternoon, in the league's championship game. Monmouth, which won the NEC title in 1995 and 1996, is making its first-ever NCAA appearance in program history. The Hawks earned the number one seed in the NEC postseason with its first regular season title since 2000, and topped Long Island 1-0 in the semifinals.

Penn State, the Big Ten regular season champion, enters the NCAA Tournament with a 16-3-2 record.

Hofstra (17-3-0) and Ohio State (12-9-1) are the other two teams in the region.

You enticed me to look up Korver's stats..shooting 35 % from 3 and the team a whopping 28 percent from 3...brrrr.

It prob won't be that cold..but I won't be going. Friday night is HS fball and - to the Press - the only thing more important than HS football is, well ----nothing!

I doubt if we're sending anyone, though that's not official.

Had it been RU or maybe even as close as UConn than maybe..but a moot point now....
