Women’s Basketball Wins Third Conference Title, Hosting NCAAs
02.27.13 |
With wins over Widener University and Messiah College last week, the Lebanon Valley College women’s basketball team was able to capture its third consecutive Commonwealth Conference Championship and earn its fourth-straight bid into the NCAA Division III Women’s Basketball Championship tournament in the process.

Before winning the conference tournament, LVC was tabbed seventh in the NCAA’s Mid-Atlantic regional rankings – a stacking used in determining NCAA tournament at-large bids and hosting sites. With its wins and consequential championship, LVC was selected to host games in the first two rounds of the tournament, beginning this Friday night at LVC Gymnasium.

“It’s exciting to qualify for the NCAA tournament and to host,” head coach Todd Goclowski said. “Our community and fans are such an important part of our program, and it’s a great feeling to be able to share the experience with them here at LVC.”

On Friday, #5 Montclair State University will play Regis College at 6 p.m. #19 LVC will play #24 Baruch College at 8 p.m. The winners will play in the second round game Saturday at 6 p.m.

For those who cannot attend, LVC will provide live video broadcasts through LVCtv free of charge. Live audio coverage will be available online through WMSS 91.1 FM, and live statistics will be online at

This season, the Dutchmen are averaging 69.7 points per game with a 15-point average scoring margin over opponents. They enter Friday night’s game on an eight-game home winning streak.

The team’s eight seniors have known nothing but success in their time at LVC. They reached the Commonwealth finals as freshman and have been champions in each year since. Overall, the group owns a 101-15 collegiate record, spelling a dynasty.

Now in his seventh season at the helm of the team, Goclowski holds a 149-47 record at LVC – thanks in large part to his steady recruiting and the “team first” mentality that he has instilled in his players.

“I am very proud of our student-athletes and the team-first culture we developed together. It’s a challenging sacrifice to be selfless and to always work for the benefit of the group,” Goclowski said. “Our shared success is due in large part to their commitment to the team concept and is reflected in how well they represent themselves on the court, in the classroom, and in our community. I am so proud of our team.”
