Winthrop has been to the NCAA Tournament nine times, all of them between 1999 and 2010. Can the Eagles end the six season drought and get back this season? Come out to the Winthrop Coliseum and find out.
The Eagles advanced to the Round of 32 in 2007, their best showing in the tournament. The season before, they were beaten by a buzzer beater by Tennessee’s Chris Lofton, keeping them from advancing to the Round of 32.
The Eagles play their home games at Winthrop Coliseum, which opened in 1982 and seats over 6000 fans. There are only great seats at the Eagles games and you will enjoy all your favorite concession items such as chili, chicken tenders, hot dogs, wraps, pulled pork sandwiches and more while you watch a great game. The students keep the atmosphere lively as they take their basketball seriously at Winthrop.
The Eagles play in the Big South Conference which includes teams such as Campbell, Charleston Southern, Coastal Carolina, Gardner-Webb, High Point, Liberty, Longwood, Presbyterian, Radford and UNC Asheville. These teams will be trying to get to the NCAA Tournament by winning the Big South Conference Tournament and earning the automatic bid. They will also be trying to get to the postseason by winning the regular season championship. So the action will be intense when these teams come to Winthrop Coliseum all season long.
