The NCAA Division II Women’s Basketball Committee announced on March 8 the selection of the KSU Women’s Basketball Team for a spot in the 2015 NCAA Division II Women’s Basketball Championship.

Kentucky State University is celebrating the Thorbrettes’ achievement with a send-off Wednesday, March 11, at noon at the campus’ William Exum Center.  The public is invited to join the campus community for a pep rally and autographs from members of the basketball team and coaches. Representatives from the City of Frankfort also will join the celebration with a proclamation declaring March 11 as “KSU’s Women Thorobrettes Basketball Day.” Everyone attending is asked to wear KSU’s school colors – green and gold.

The Thorobrettes will be accompanied out of the city by a motorcade as they travel to Jackson, Tenn.
