The Stetson Hatters have never been to the NCAA Tournament at the D-I level. They have not been to any postseason tournament in D-I and have not played in any postseason tournament since 1971. Stetson basketball has to be in the longest postseason tournament drought in D-I basketball. Will this be the year the Hatters finally make the postseason? Come out to the Edmunds Center in DeLand, Florida and find out.
The Edmunds Center opened in 1974 and seats 5000 fans for the Hatters home games. Every seat in close to the court and you can enjoy concession items such as popcorn, pizza, pretzels, hot dogs and sodas while enjoying the game. The neighborhood surrounding the Edmunds Center is about as nice as you could ask for. You may want to get there early and stay late ans you can enjoy a nice walk around the campus and find somewhere to eat or shop along the way.
Stetson is part of the A-Sun Conference which includes teams such as Florida Gulf Coast, Jacksonville, Kennesaw State, Lipscomb, New Jersey Tech, North Florida, and USC Upstate. Teams from the A-Sun have been making an impact in the NCAA Tournament in recent years with teams like Florida Gulf Coast making the Sweet Sixteen in 2013 and former A-Sun champion Mercer beating Duke in 2014. Can the Hatters be one of those teams this year? Or will one of their opponents from the A-Sun?
The A-Sun Tournament champion will get to go to the NCAA Tournament. But the NIT will also give an automatic bid to the regular season champion. So when the A-Sun teams come to Edmunds Center this season, there is a lot at stake. Don’t miss out on the exciting college basketball action at the Edmunds Center this season.
