Shenandoah (6-20) earned that spot with an 82-73 upset of sixth-seeded Virginia Wesleyan Tuesday evening.
SU will be making its first appearance in Salem since dropping a heartbreaking, 53-52, decision to top-seeded Eastern Mennonite in the 2014 tournament.
To earn that spot, SU will need to snap a six-game losing streak to the No. 3 Wasps. E&H is 18-7 on the season with two of those wins coming at the expense of the Hornets. The Wasps were 103-43 winners in Emory on December 3 and 64-40 victors in Winchester on February 4.
Sophomore Taylor Blevins leads E&H in scoring at 13.4 points per game with senior Megan Jacoby hitting for 10.4 ppg.
E&H averages 71.1 points per game and has cracked the 90-point barrier on five occasions.
Junior Kirstyn Arcata paces SU in scoring at 10.1 ppg. In the first round victory over VWC, Arcata had a team-high 28 points and was 7 of 10 from behind the arc. The seven 3-pointers ties the school record and her 70 percent shooting from outside is a new school record.
