HPU represented the Big South in the NCAA tournament last season after defeating Campbell in the Conference Tournament Finals.

Chelsea Banbury is in her third season as head coach at HPU and has a 45-31 record.

THE SERIES: Despite being less than 20 miles apart, A&T and High Point have only played three times and the first time since the 2004-05 season. The Aggies lead the series 2-1 and have won their last two meetings, including a 52-50 win at Corbett.

QUOTABLE: “After two hard-hitting games on the road, it’s great to be back at the Corbett Sports Center to play the Big South preseason No. 1 High Point University. We understand the championship culture they have and will not take this opportunity for granted.”
