WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. - Having already secured the No. 3-seed in next  week's MAC Commonwealth Championship, the Lycoming College women's basketball team will wrap up its regular season on Saturday, Feb. 17, when it heads to Albright College.

The Warriors (17-6 overall, 11-4 MAC Commonwealth) are coming off an 80-66 win over Lebanon Valley that secured the team's highest postseason seed since joining the conference 2007-08. Four Warriors finished in double figures, led by 18 points and seven rebounds from sophomore Akilah McFadden.

The Lions (18-6 overall, 13-2 MAC Commonwealth) are locked into a No. 1 or No. 2 conference championship seed, despite a loss in its last outing to No. 16 Messiah, 65-57. Albright is eighth in the NCAA's Mid-Atlantic Regional Rankings.

Warrior Notes
• With a win, the Warriors can reach 18 wins for the second time in program history and the first time since the 1987-88 squad won a school-record 21.

• The senior class of Erin Briggs, Hailey Fricke, Shelby Mueller and Haley Sipple's 61 career wins is fourth in program history and the most since the 1997-98 group won a school-record 65.

• With 720 career rebounds, Mueller needs two more to tie Amy Elder (1979-83) for fourth in the program's career record book.

• Mueller needs six more points to become the 19th player in school history to post 350 in a season.

• Sophomore Morgan Mader needs to hit two more 3-pointers to become the fourth player in school history to hit 50 in a season.

• Three Warriors - Mader (2.1), sophomore Akilah McFadden (1.0) and junior Becca Painter (1.0) - are averaging at least one 3-pointer made per game for the first time since 2009-10.
