LEXINGTON, Ky.—For the first time since the Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference began holding post-season basketball tournaments, the same school—Transylvania—will serve as host for both the men's and women's events Friday and Saturday.

Transy's women won the HCAC regular season outright with a win over Anderson Saturday and earned the No. 1 seed. The men also defeated Anderson and were co-champions with Franklin. The Pioneers got the top seed and the right to host the semifinal and final rounds by winning a tie-breaker. The women's semifinals will be held at 2 and 4 p.m. on Friday at the Beck Center with Transy playing in the opener against Franklin. The men's semifinals are set for 6 and 8 p.m. Friday with the Pioneers taking the floor in the second game against Anderson. The women's finals are set for 5 p.m. Saturday with the men's championship game following at 7 p.m. Anderson is the No. 2 seed in the women's event and Franklin is the second seed for the men.

Admission is $5 for adults and $4 for senior citizens and students. For more information, contact Glenn Osborne, sports information director,  at (859) 233-8284 or gosborne@transy.edu.
