Bulldogs Look To Pack Lee Amphitheater For Postseason Push
NEW HAVEN, Conn. — With its first postseason appearance in more than 30 years hanging in the balance this weekend, the Yale University women's basketball team announced today that admission into the final two games of the season will be free to all fans in attendance.
The Bulldogs will face Columbia on Friday and Cornell on Saturday, with Senior Night festivities taking place prior to the game against Cornell. Both games will tip off at 7 p.m. inside John J. Lee Amphitheater.
Yale (13-13, 9-3 Ivy League) remains in the hunt for the Ivy League title in a race with first-place Princeton and third-place Harvard. Princeton, 10-1 in the Ivy League, would need to lose two of its final three games and Yale would need to win both games this weekend to force a playoff for the Ivy League title.
The Bulldogs can clinch second place in the Ivy League, and the Ivy's automatic bid into the WNIT Tournament, with two wins this weekend.
Yale has not participated in a postseason tournament since the 1978-79 season.
Fans are encouraged to arrive early both nights in order to take in the pregame ceremonies prior to each game.
The Bulldogs will also hold a short ceremony prior to Friday's game that will include a presentation to the Smilow Cancer Hospital surrounding Yale's Pink Zone festivities last month.
