Fresh off winning their 16th Southern Conference tournament title and a second consecutive run through SoCon play, the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga women's basketball team will be hosting a selection show party Monday night at Jefferson's as the Mocs find out where and whom they will play in the upcoming NCAA women's tournament.

The party will be open to the public and will begin at 6 p.m. with the team and fans watching the one-hour selection show on ESPN starting at 7 p.m.

UTC (29-3) is on a 25-game winning streak, is ranked No. 17 in the Associated Press women's Top 25 and has wins over then-No. 4 Tennessee and then-No. 7 Stanford this season. The Mocs are expected to get a high seed in the NCAA tournament, currently projected as No. 7 seed in the Albany Regional by ESPN women's bracketology expert Charlie Creme.

Jefferson's is located at 618 Georgia Avenue, and there will be no admission fee to attend the event.
