BOILING SPRINGS – Gardner-Webb University will host an NCAA Selection Show watch party for its men’s basketball team on Sunday, March 17, from 5:00-7:00 pm and the event is open to the public.

A festival atmosphere is planned in and around Tucker Student Center, as the Runnin’ Bulldogs await their name on the NCAA Men’s Basketball Division I Championship bracket for the first time in program history.

“This is a really exciting time for our community and campus,” said head coach Tim Craft. “We’ve had tremendous support for our team all season, but particularly during this late season run that included our first Big South title. We would like to invite everyone out for a celebration of the season and the historic reveal of our first NCAA Tournament bracket on Sunday. This should be a lot of fun for everybody.”

Food trucks and other refreshment options will be available on site, as well as a DJ, games and giveaways. Fans will also have an opportunity to take their photograph with the 2019 Big South Conference Men’s Basketball Championship Trophy on site.

The celebration will also include autograph tables following the selection show for fans to interact with current members of the Gardner-Webb team.

Auxiliary aids will be made available to persons with disabilities upon request 48 hours prior to the event. Please call 704-406-2155 or email with your request.
