The pairings are out for the MEAC men's and women's basketball tournament.
On the men's side the Rattlers earned a #2 seed, they have a bye in the first round and they'll play Wednesday night at 10pm against the winner of the Hampton/Howard game set for Tuesday night.
The Rattlers swept the two games against Howard, but lost both times to Hampton by two points, once in overtime.
If the Rattlers win Wednesday night, they'd have Thursday off and they'd play Friday night at 8pm in the semifinals for the first time since 2004 when they won the MEAC.
The Lady Rattlers play against BCC on Tuesday night in the first round of the MEAC.
