A travel package to Salem, Va. – offered to fans to watch St. Thomas play in the next round of the NCAA Division III men’s basketball playoffs – has been canceled because enough people didn’t sign up.
The top-ranked Tommies (29-1) will face Williams College (Mass.) at noon (EDT) Friday, March 22, in the Elite Eight round. If they win on Friday, they will play in the semifinals at 6 p.m. (EDT) Saturday for the right to advance to the championship game April 7 in Atlanta.
Individuals who need travel assistance can call Creative Charters at (651) 748-0080. Game ticket packages for all sessions are available ($25 for adults and $12.50 for students) through the Department of Athletics and JoAnn Andregg at (651) 962-5902. Game tickets also can be purchased from the Salem Civic Center, (540-375-3004), or at the box office there.
If St. Thomas wins both games this weekend, the Tommie Club will attempt to schedule a charter flight for the Division III title game in Atlanta.
