For the second consecutive year, the Sacred Heart womens basketball team will be making an appearance in the postseason. SHU will travel to Jamaica, Queens to take on St. John's University on Friday at 7 p.m. The game will air live on ESPN3.
The Pioneers are playing in the postseason for the seventh time since 2006 and for the fifth time in the last seven seasons. SHU made its first-ever WNIT appearance in 2013, before earning a berth last season as well.
SHU has faced off against the Red Storm twice in school history, losing both contests. The first time the two teams faced off came in 2013, where the Pioneers lost 77-72 in an overtime thriller. This was the first contest for Head Coach Jessica Mannetti. The Pioneers also faced off against St. Johns last season, where they fell 67-54.
