The Penn State Lady Lions will open their NCAA Tournament with a first round matchup against UTEP at 5:15 p.m. on Sunday in Baton Rouge, La.
After winning the Big Ten's regular season championship, the program's first since 2004, Coach Coquese Washington's team is in the Big Dance for a second straight year. The Lions will be looking to improve on a second-round exit from last season, when they fell to DePaul in the comforts of the Bryce Jordan Center.
For a look ahead to the action, we've enlisted the help of The Daily Collegian's Lady Lions beat writer, Tim Gilbert. Tim has covered Penn State from start to finish, and you can check out his beat's coverage at the Collegian's Lady Lions' home page as well as the all-sports blog Roll Up The Score.
AB: Any thoughts on Lady Lions dropping to a No. 4 seed? Seemed like a lot of people were expecting a No. 3.
