MURFREESBORO - The Middle Tennessee Blue Raider Athletic Association has announced a bus trip to Pittsburgh, Pa., this weekend to catch the Blue Raider women's basketball team in NCAA Tournament action. Middle Tennessee earned a No. 10 seed in the Dayton Region and will play No. 7 seed Mississippi State at approximately 1:30 p.m. Sunday at the Petersen Events Center.
The Gray Line bus will leave Murfreesboro from the Greenland Drive parking lot at 7 a.m. Saturday. Cost for the bus is $125 and rooms have been reserved for an additional $139 per night plus tax at the Hampton University Inn. Tickets to the game are $16 apiece and cover both games Sunday, including the Ohio State-St. Francis (Pa.) matchup prior to the Blue Raiders' tip.
Those going on the bus trip will stay Saturday and Sunday nights with contingent plans to stay Monday and Tuesday nights and leave Wednesday should Middle Tennessee win Sunday and advance to Tuesday's Second Round. Otherwise, the bus will depart Monday to arrive back in Murfreesboro later that night.
