The tournament will feature the semifinal round and championship games from both the men’s and women’s tournament brackets. The semifinals will take place on Friday, Feb. 26, with the championship games being played on Saturday, Feb. 27.

“This is a wonderful opportunity to showcase Agnes Scott’s beautiful campus and facilities to a wide range of visitors,” Athletic Director Joeleen Akin said. “We are excited that the Agnes Scott community will have the chance to see both men’s and women’s teams from schools such as Piedmont, Huntingdon, Maryville and LaGrange. Our ability to host an event as large as this says so much about Agnes Scott athletics.”

All semi-final and final games will be broadcast with live audio and video at:

Last year’s GSAC Basketball Championships were hosted by Maryville College. More than 1,000 spectators attended games on their campus.

Conference championships are awarded to schools on a rotating basis. Agnes Scott hosted the GSAC Soccer Championships in the fall of 2003 and GSAC Tennis Championships in the spring of 2008. Agnes Scott is scheduled to host the GSAC Volleyball Championships this November.
