Nashville, Tenn. - The USC Upstate softball team is set to play in the championship of the A-Sun Tournament today at Draper Diamond on the campus of Lipscomb. The Spartans will battle the host Lady Bisons for the A-Sun Tournament title and the league's automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament.
The A-Sun Championship will begin at 12 noon and can be seen live on ESPN3. The Spartans advanced to the championship after defeating Stetson, 5-1, on Thursday. A 4-2 loss to Lipscomb Friday did not dampen Upstate's championship hopes, returning Friday night to take a dominant 9-2 victory over top-seeded North Florida.
Lipscomb advanced to the championship after defeating Kennesaw State Wednesday, North Florida Thursday and Upstate Friday. The Lady Bisons need just one win on the day to take the championship, while Upstate must win two against Lipscomb.
