YSU to host pair of games

YOUNGSTOWN — The Youngstown State men’s and women’s basketball teams will host postseason tournament games on Wednesday as part of a doubleheader at Beeghly Center.

The Youngstown State women’s basketball team will host Kent State at 5:30 p.m. in the first round of the 2022 Postseason Women’s NIT. The Youngstown State men’s basketball team will host Morgan St. at 8:00 p.m. in the first round of the 2022 Basketball Classic.

Youngstown State is 1-3 all-time in the Women’s NIT and will be looking for its first win in the tournament since beating Indiana State at Beeghly Center in the opening round in 2013. Since then, YSU has played at Toledo in 2013, hosted Duquesne in 2015, and played at Cincinnati in 2019.

The Penguins’ men’s team first appeared in the postseason when they played in the CIT in 2013. YSU owns a CIT record of 1-1 after defeating Oakland, 99-87, and falling to Canisius, 84-82, in overtime in 2013. Both games were at Beeghly Center.

Reserved tickets are $15 and general admission is $10. One ticket is good for both games. Tickets will go on sale Monday evening on YSUsports.com, and tickets can be purchased at the YSU Athletic Ticket Office in Stambaugh Stadium or over the phone at (330) 941-1978 starting at 9 a.m. today.
