(WAOW)-  The Pointer mens and womens basketball teams start their postseason play on friday, As both hit the court in the NCAA first round.

The men play host to Carleton College while the women will travel to St. Norbert to face Minnesota-Morris.

And both come in flying high after capturing the WIAC tournament titles at Whitewater last weekend.

Says Men's Coach Bob Semling, "We are coming into this NCAA tournament with great momentum and the fact that we were able to earn a home court because of the win at Whitewater, that has really given us a lift. I'm really excited for our fans that they're gonna be able to see us at home."

Says Women's Coach Shirley Egner, "Our kids get all the credit for really battling hard and if we can come out on Friday and have a good start and really get on them early, then I think Saturday's game was really beneficial for us."
