ITHACA, N.Y. - The Ithaca men's basketball team is looking for an NCAA tournament berth and history this weekend in the Empire 8 tournament at Stevens.
The Bombers are trying to win their second-straight E8 tournament title and with it the conference's automatic berth into the big dance, and senior guard Sean Rossi needs only one more assist to set a new NCAA Division III career record. He is currently tied for the all-time lead with 917.
Ithaca is the No. 2 seed and plays No. 3 St. John Fisher in the semifinals Friday night starting at 8. The Bombers won both reguar-season meetings with the Cardinals but only by a combined five points.
