AMCC Basketball Tournament Pairings Set
02/20/2005

GIBSONIA, PA — The jockeying for seedings in the 2005 Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference Men’s and Women’s Basketball Tournaments went down to the wire with several key contests Saturday impacting the final regular-season standings and pairings.

On the women’s side, Frostburg State claimed its first outright AMCC regular-season title and the No. 1 seed with a 16-2 league mark. The Bobcats, 19-6 overall, earned a first-round bye and will host the semifinals and finals this Friday and Saturday at Bobcat Arena.

Pitt-Greensburg (18-7, 15-3 AMCC) edged FSU 95-93 in overtime Saturday in the regular-season finale for both teams to secure the No. 2 seed and the other first-round bye.

In first-round action set for Tuesday, No. 3 Medaille (19-5, 14-4) will host No. 6 La Roche (9-16, 9-9) while No. 4 Penn State Behrend (11-7, 16-9) welcomes No. 5 Pitt-Bradford (11-14, 9-9). Both games tip off at 7 pm.

Medaille enters the tournament as the league’s hottest team, having won 11 straight, including victories over Frostburg State and Pitt-Greensburg. Penn State Behrend is also on a roll, carrying a six-game streak into the first round.

Friday’s semifinal action begins at 6 pm as FSU takes on the Penn State Behrend/Pitt-Bradford winner. The second semifinal has Pitt-Greensburg squaring off with the Medaille/La Roche winner at 8 pm.

The championship game is set for Saturday at 3 pm.

On the men’s side, Frostburg State (14-11, 9-9) has secured the No. 6 seed and will visit No. 3 Lake Erie (14-11, 12-6) for a first-round game Tuesday at 7 pm.

The Bobcats split their two regular-season meetings with the Storm this season. FSU posted a 68-65 win at Bobcat Arena January 7, while Lake Erie countered with a 97-64 home victory February 5.

Tuesday’s other first-round contest features No. 4 Pitt-Bradford (13-12, 10-8) hosting No. 5 La Roche (12-13, 10-8).

No. 1 Pitt-Greensburg (16-9, 15-3) is riding a school-record seven-game winning streak and has earned a bye into Friday’s semifinal round. UPG will face the Pitt-Bradford/La Roche winner at 6 pm.
