Upstate Women's Hoops: Making the Case for Postseason Play
Spartanburg, S.C. - Following a second-straight season when the Spartans finished third in the A-Sun, USC Upstate has made a strong case to be considered for postseason play. The A-Sun has jumped on board to promote the Spartans' efforts to garner a postseason berth.
Upstate finished the season with a 17-12 overall record and a 13-7 mark in the A-Sun. Senior post player Chelsea McMillan was named the Player of the Year in the conference and was a first team all-conference selection. Sophomore Tee'Ara Copney joined McMillan on the all-conference team as a second team selection. It marked the first time since the 1994-95 season that multiple Spartans had been selected to an all-conference team in women's basketball.
In its final year of provisional status in NCAA Division I, Upstate is currently ineligible to be selected for play in the NCAA Tournament. The Spartans are, however, eligible to be selected for either the WNIT or WBI.
On Tuesday, the A-Sun put together a profile to help promote the accomplishments of Upstate in its attempt to earna postseason berth. That profile can be seen by clicking here.
