The NCAA announced its edition of the 2017 Division III women’s basketball regional rankings on Feb. 15, with the Albright College women’s team remaining the sixth seed in the Mid-Atlantic Region.

The No. 19 ranked Messiah is currently seeded ahead of the Lions in fourth. However, the Lions remain one game ahead of the Falcons in the standings as the two meet in the final regular-season game on Saturday, February 18 in the Bollman Center.

The game will decide who the top seed is in the MAC Commonwealth Championship beginning next week. The Lions clinch the top seed with a win or a loss by three points or less. In the previous matchup between the two teams, Albright edged out Messiah 85-82 in a crucial road win on January 14.
