Dear University of Miami Faculty and Staff,

It is with great pride that I share with you that for the first time in 24 years our Women's Basketball program will host the first and second rounds of the NCAA tournament on our campus. No. 4 seed Miami will open the NCAA tournament at the Watsco Center on Saturday, March 18 at 4 p.m., and the second round will be played on Monday, March 20.

This is an exciting achievement for our Women's Basketball program, and we need to show our enthusiastic support by cheering them on at the Watsco Center. UM Athletics has created a special $2 ticket for all faculty and staff, which is a $23 savings per ticket. Tickets can be purchased here.

Please join me in congratulating Coach Katie Meier and our Women's Basketball program, and let's show our Hurricane pride at the Watsco Center on Saturday and Monday.
