The Dominican College men's basketball team has earned the program's first appearance in the NCAA East Regional Tournament as was announced by the NCAA last night. The Chargers have earned the fifth seed in the East Regional and will take on the fourth seed, the University of New Haven.

The regional will be hosted by #2 Saint Anselm College and all games will be played on the campus of #6 Southern New Hampshire University at the SNHU Fieldhouse.

The Chargers became the first team in the East Region to reach the 20-win plateau this season after topping Goldey-Beacom College, 89-69, on February 16th. DC also had a 10-game winning streak this season, which spanned late November through the middle of January. Dominican made appearances in all three East Regional Rankings this season in both the sixth and fifth spot.

DC will face New Haven on Saturday, March 16th at 8:30 pm in an NCAA East Region Quarter-Final matchup.
