Green Terror tabbed sixth in latest rankings

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. - The fourth NCAA Division III Mid-Atlantic women's basketball regional rankings have released and McDaniel is sixth.

The Green Terror (18-6, 16-4 CC) makes its debut in the regional rankings after an 82-70 victory on Saturday over Gettysburg, which was ranked No. 6 in last week's Mid-Atlantic rankings.

McDaniel travels to Muhlenberg for a rematch with the Bullets in the Centennial Conference (CC) semifinals on Saturday, searching for its fourth conference title.

With a victory, the Green Terror will advance to the championship game on Sunday at 2 p.m. The winner receives the conference's automatic bid into the NCAA tournament.

With its regional ranking, McDaniel could also be considered for one of the 21 at-large bids into the tournament if the team does not earn the automatic bid that comes with a championship. The Green Terorr earned its first-ever at-large bid in 2007 after falling in the CC semifinals.

The NCAA field will be announced on Monday at approximately 12:30 p.m.

Ali Moreland (Davidsonville, Md./South River) leads the team in scoring (14.5 ppg) and steals (61) while ranking second in assists (71) and field-goal percentage (.454). She is also fourth in rebounding (4.5 rpg).

Katelyn Fischer (Reisterstown, Md./Seton Keough) ranks second on the team in scoring (10.5 ppg) and 3-pointers (29) while leading the team in assists (80) and field-goal percentage (.487).

Ashley Lyles (Laurel, Md./St. Vincent Pallotti) ranks third on the team in scoring (10.0 ppg), leading the team in both rebounding (6.4 rpg) and blocked shots (52).

Game time on Saturday is 4 p.m.
