MARCH 25, 2014 -- The NCAA Division II Women's Elite 8 Championship took over Erie Insurance Arena. This is the first time Erie has hosted the national tournament. Tonight’s match up had more than 2,000 people at the game. The Edinboro women’s basketball team tipped off on Tuesday for their chance to fight for the Elite 8 title. The local school has many people from the area cheering in the stands to show their support for the University. It’s the first time since 1997 that Edinboro's women’s basketball team has made it to the Elite 8. The morale was high as students, alumni and local supporters came out to the game to root for the Fighting Scots.
