JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – The UNF Ospreys (23–11) will travel to Dayton, Ohio, to play Robert Morris (19-14) in the play-in game Wednesday at 6:40 p.m. -- what the NCAA is calling the "First Dance."

The winner will play No. 1 seed Duke in the South Region of the NCAA Tournament on Friday.

Last Sunday the Ospreys defeated SC Upstate 63-57 in the A-Sun Championship game to earn the automatic bid.

It's the school's first appearance in the NCAA Tournament.

"We are thrilled to be part of this extraordinary moment in the University's history," said UNF President John Delaney.
