For the second straight season, the Ashland University women's basketball team will enjoy home court advantage again as AU plays host to the NCAA Division II regionals in women's basketball.  Last year, Ashland downed Wisconsin Parkside in front of nearly 2,600 fans at Kates Gymnasium 78-65, to win the regional championship moving on to the elite eight and eventually the NCAA D-2 final.

Head coach Sue Ramsey takes the defending GLIAC champions to their fourth NCAA regional.  For Ramsey and the team, playing in front of home fans in such a huge tournament most certainly gives her team a big boost.  The coach also feels that the team is getting back in stride now that All-American Kari Daugherty is back in the lineup after missing eight games in the second half of the season due to a knee injury. 

The second ranked Eagles head into the game against Indianapolis Friday at 6pm at 31-1, while the Greyhounds are 19-9.  The two met earlier in the season with the Eagles winning 70-54.  The 31-1 mark by the AU ladies is second all-time only to last season's 33-2 national runner-up finish.  Kates Gym has also been kind to AU, with their last loss at home coming back on January 29, 2011, an 81-73 OT loss to Findlay.  Since then, the Eagles have won 40 straight at home.  The NCAA Division II record for home wins is 87 straight by Nebraska-Kearney. 

Should the Eagles win on Friday, they'll advance to the regional semifinal on Saturday at 7:30pm against the Kentucky Wesleyan/Michigan Tech winner.  Both teams are at 20-8.  The regional final is set for 7pm on Monday night at Kates.  Ashland U. enters the tournament riding a seven game winning streak.
