The Penn State Fayette women's basketball team officially received word Saturday that it has earned a bid for the United States Collegiate Athletic Association (USCAA) National Championship tournament.
Fayette will have home-court advantage as it is the host of the tournament.
While the USCAA did not inform Fayette Athletic Director Lou Zadecky or women's head coach Scott Hillen what seed the team will be before Sunday night's deadline, the team will open play this Sunday.
The tournament has 10 teams and each team is guaranteed at least two games.
A pair games are scheduled on Sunday as the eighth-seeded and ninth-seeded teams will square off at 10 a.m. while the seventh-seeded and 10th-seeded teams face off at noon.
Both games take place in the main gym.
The winners of the two games on Sunday advance into the winner's bracket while the losers will play Monday at 10:00 a.m. in the ARC gym on campus.
