The championship for the Colonial Conference Tournament sees the No. 2 College of Charleston Cougars vs. the No. 4 UNC Wilmington Seahawks in the final game on Tuesday, March 7 at 7:00 p.m. ET. The game will air on CBSSN, and the winner will receive an automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament.
No. 2 Charleston (30-3, 16-2 CAA)
Charleston made a big impact early in the season, finding their way into the AP Top 25 for a period of time before they finally lost a second time. The Cougars put together an impressive season that was topped off by dismantling No. 10 Stonybrook and a tight win over No. 3 Towson to reach the championship game. No. 1 seed Hofstra could have been a problem for the Cougars, but with UNCW on the other ticket, Charleston is just one heavily-favored win away from reaching the NCAA Tournament. The Cougars last reached the tournament in 2018.
No. 4 UNCW (24-9, 12-6 CAA)
UNC Wilmington had the fourth seed going into the CAA Tournament after closing out their regular season with a loss to Towson. They’ve been working hard to win, defeating No. 5 Drexel and No. 1 Hofstra by a combined 11 points. The Seahawks last reached the NCAA Tournament in 2017, and have their work cut out for them here after two nail biters. Charleston beat the Seahawks 71-69 and 93-61 this season.
