Rock men earn NCAA tournament berth

Slippery Rock University’s men's basketball team will make its second trip to the NCAA Division II tournament in the last three seasons when it takes on Winston-Salem State University in Atlantic Regional first-round action.

The NCAA game will tip off at 2:30 p.m., Saturday, at West Liberty University in West Virginia.

The Rock, which claimed Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference runner-up honors last weekend under the direction of fifth-year head coach Kevin Reynolds, own a 22-8 record and received the seventh seed in the eight-team regional competition.

The regional berth is only the fifth earned by a Rock men's basketball team. SRU also appeared in the NCAA tournament in 1978, 1990, 1991 and 2011.

In its most-recent NCAA tournament appearance, SRU lost a 117-73, first-round decision to eventual regional champion West Liberty on the Hilltoppers' home court.
