The women's basketball team is the top seed in the NESCAC Tournament and will play host to the semifinals and finals of the tourney on Saturday and Sunday, February 23 and 24. The men's and women's ice hockey teams, both seeded second in their respective brackets, will also enjoy home games as they will host a first-round doubleheader against Amherst on Saturday, February 23.
