Both Misericordia Cougars and Lady Cougars accomplished a lot of first's this season.  The Misericordia Men's basketball program had a 12 game winning streak and a 21-6 record which all led to their first Freedom Conference Championship.  The Cougars earned their first NCAA tournament bid and will open the tournament tomorrow at 7:00 P.M. at New York University.  Misericordia Women's basketball program is coming off a MAC championship and earning their first NCAA tournament bid when they travel to Massachuttes Friday to play Tufts University.  Both teams have a challenge to keep their season going.
